Gerard Butler’s back providing the voice of Stoick the Vast in the animated sequel How to Train Your Dragon 2 heading to theaters on June 13, 2014. Stoick’s the chief of the Vikings who inhabit the town of Berk and he’s also the father of Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel). And in this interview courtesy of 20th Century Fox and DreamWorks Animation, Butler discusses his character, Stoick’s relationship with his son and Astrid, and what’s going on in Berk. Butler also talks about the animation of the sequel and how much he enjoys working with director Dean DeBlois.

The Plot:

The thrilling second chapter of the epic How to Train Your Dragon trilogy brings us back to the fantastical world of Hiccup and Toothless five years after the two have successfully united dragons and vikings on the island of Berk. While Astrid, Snoutlout and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island’s new favorite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new worlds. When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace. Now, Hiccup and Toothless must unite to stand up for what they believe while recognizing that only together do they have the power to change the future of both men and dragons.
