Comic-Con: ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2’ Adds Hounsou, Blanchett, and Harrington


Dreamworks Animation announced today that they have added Djimon Hounson, Cate Blanchett and Kit Harrington to the voice cast for How to Train Your Dragon 2. Blanchett will voice a feral vigilante intent on freeing enslaved dragons, Hounsou a manical dragon hunter and Harrington a dragon trapper working for Hounsou. The highly anticipated sequel takes place five years after the first film, with Hiccup and his friends in their late teens. With the Northern Hemisphere now open, Hiccup and his friends discover new dragons and new cultures, as well as a larger conflict between humans and dragons.

The film opens in June 2014.
