In the upcoming How To Train Your Dragon 2, Cate Blanchett stars as Valka, a reclusive vigilante from the Arctic, who rescues dragons. And, according to Dean DeBlois, the co-director of the first (How To Train Your Dragon from 2010) and director of the second film, this brave lady is living with the animals and learning to communicate with them in non-verbal ways. Head inside to check her out…
In case you forgot, the second chapter of the epic How To Train Your Dragon trilogy returns to the fantastical world of the heroic Viking Hiccup, voiced by Jay Baruchel, and his faithful dragon Toothless. They must save the future of men and dragons from the power-hungry Drago, voiced by Djimon Hounsou.
As for Blanchett’s character, let us also add that she’s much like a dragon herself. Or, as DeBlois revealed: Her years of isolation and dealing with nothing but dragons and being very sympathetic to them has made her very distrusting of humans.
Also starring Gerard Butler, Kit Harington, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T.J. Miller and Kristen Wiig, the movie is set to hit theaters on June 13th, 2014.
