This momentous confirmation follows a series of speculations surrounding the actor’s involvement in the continuation of the successful franchise.

“How to Train Your Dragon”, based on the children’s novel series by British author Cressida Cowell, is an animated action-fantasy film series produced by DreamWorks Animation. The series has three main films: “How to Train Your Dragon” (2010), “How to Train Your Dragon 2” (2014), and “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” (2019). These films follow the captivating adventures of a young Viking chief named Hiccup and his loyal dragon companion, Toothless.

Gerard Butler, an accomplished actor with more than two decades of experience in the industry, added life and intensity to the character of Stoick the Vast, Hiccup’s demanding, but caring, Viking chief father. Fans of the franchise admired Butler’s distinct and deep Scottish accent, perfect for the role’s rousing speeches and battle cries. He made the character endearing and memorable by infusing an irresistible blend of courage, caring love, and the touch of a mentor.

Even in death, Stoick’s character emanates influence and guidance in Hiccup’s life, which Butler’s voice acting made all the more powerful. This keeps fans wrapped in the captivating folds of the series, waiting eagerly for each release.

The series will materialize under the expert direction of Mystery Science Theatre 3000’s Joel Hodgson.

This project, however, is just another feather in Butler’s cap. The actor, who mastered the art of screen presence in high-grossing films like “300” and “P.S. I Love You”, has been busy with a series of projects. From the apocalyptic film “Greenland” to the action-thriller “Copshop”, Butler continues to demonstrate his acting prowess and diversity in roles.
