Cate Blanchett joins cast of "How To Train Your Dragon 2"

Thursday, July 18, 2013 12:54 PM | Anonymous

BREAKING: Cate Blanchett has joined the cast of "How To Train Your Dragon 2".

Dreamworks Animation made the announcement today during their panel at San Diego's geek-fest, Comic-Con.

According to the film's director, Dean DeBlois, Blanchett is set to voice Valka, a courageous vigilante fighter who is trying to save the dragons from two villains who are trying to capture and enslave the dragons.


The studio also announced that Game of Thrones' Kit Harington (Jon Snow), and Oscar nominated actor Djimon Hounsou will play the villains. 

This news comes a year in advance of the release dates of the film, which is set for 20 June 2014 in the USA and 10 July 2014 in Australia. 

Dean DeBlois is a seasoned animation writer and director, and judging from the reception he received at the event today, this is a highly anticipated film!

Blanchett joins Gerard Butler, Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill and Jay Baruchel on the cast. 

Congrats, Cate!
