DreamWorks’ popular animated franchise, How to Train Your Dragon, is set to be adapted into a live-action film. In recent weeks, several new cast members have been announced, and now, four more have been added. According to Deadline, Julian Dennison, Gabriel Howell, Bronwyn James, and Harry Trevaldwyn will be joining the cast as Fishlegs, Moccicoso Jorgenson, Brutilda, and Brutacio, respectively.
Julian Dennison is known for his roles in The Christmas Chronicles 2, Godzilla vs. Kong, and Deadpool 2, while Gabriel Howell recently appeared in the Corpses series. Bronwyn James is recognized for her work in Sandylands, The Tragedy of Peterloo, and Agatha Christie: The Railway Guide Mystery, and Harry Trevaldwyn is known for starring in Ten Percent.
These new additions join the previously announced cast, which includes Mason Thames as Hiccup and Nico Parker as Astrid. Gerard Butler will reprise his role as Stoick the Vast, and Nick Frost will join him as the Viking Gobber the Rough. Dean DeBlois, the director and screenwriter of the original animated films, will return to direct, write, and produce the live-action remake of How to Train Your Dragon.
Based on the book by Cressida Cowell, How to Train Your Dragon follows the story of Hiccup, a teenage Viking whose life is changed when he encounters a dragon that challenges him and his fellow Vikings to see the world from a different perspective. The film was originally scheduled for release on March 14, 2025, but was delayed to June 13, 2025 due to a Hollywood actors and screenwriters strike that occurred the previous year.
