Gerard Butler, Others for How to Train Your Dragon

Dreamworks’ feature length CGI movie “How to Train Your Dragon” has landed its voice actors in Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. So what’s it all about? According to The Hollywood Reporter: “Based on Cressida Cowell’s first novel in the children’s book series, the story centers on the timid son of a Viking chief who must capture and train a dragon in order to be initiated into his tribe.”


Baruchel will voice the boy, named Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third, who is saddled with an undersized and uncooperative dragon.

Butler is the father and chief of the tribe, Stoick the Vast, while Ferrera voices Astrid, who partners with Hiccup for the initiation.

Hill will play Snotlout, a bully who thinks he should be the next chief, and Mintz-Plasse portrays Fishlegs, a Viking big in size but small in brains.

Peter Hastings directs the movie, scheduled for a March 26, 2010 release.

    This is interesting. I didn’t know that Astrid was already in the earlier book-like version of the script.
