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.


TRAILER:


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!
