Cate Blanchett Joining How To Train Your Dragon 2 As Valka The Vigilante, Kit Harrington And Djimon Honsou In Too

How-To-Train-Your-Dragon-2Our man Patrick Dane is over at the Dreamworks Animation panel in San Diego Comic-Con right now, where he’s watching “superb” footage from the film and learning new details.

For example, Kit Harrington is on board to play a cocky dragon trapper called Eret, complete with swagger and a London accent; Djimon Honsou will voice a character taking those trapped dragons and turning them into an army; and Cate Blanchett plays Valka, a stealthy vigilante type set on rescuing as many of the dragons as possible.

The footage apparently looks very impressive.

Drew Struzan will be on hand at Con this afternoon to sign his How to Train Your Dragon 2 poster, and no doubt face 2000 almost identical questions about Star Wars.
