According to Variety Jay Baruchel, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T.J. Miller and Kristen Wiig will reprise their speaking roles in How to Train Your Dragon 2, which is currently in pre-production at DreamWorks.
As well as overwhelmingly positive reviews (98% on Rotten Tomatoes) How to Train Your Dragon became a surprise hit by taking nearly $500 million at the worldwide box office. With that kind of response a sequel was guaranteed.
After sharing writing and directing duties with Chris Sanders on the original, Dean DeBlois will take over both tasks on the sequel, with Sanders remaining as an executive producer. The current aim is to release the sequel in 2013, and as Cressida Cowell’s book series contains 8 books in total there will be a wealth of material to draw from.
How to Train Your Dragon will be released on DVD and Blu-ray October 15th, and you can pre-order it from Amazon via these links:
