Exclusive! How To Train Your Dragon 2: Kit Harington’s Biceps, Gerard Butler’s Burly Singing
Comedy, love and heart … The perfect recipe for a successful second installment of How To Train Your Dragon. Hiccup and family are back for another epic journey of dragon riding, friendships and fire breathing.
“There’s beautiful relationships all throughout the movie that I think really have a universal appeal,” Gerard Butler told HipHollywood during a recent interview to talk about the film. Craig Ferguson, who plays the voice of Gobber, added, “You get to see how much our characters care for each other through tragic events.”
And … out with the abs and with the biceps, we are seeing a new side of Game of Thrones star, Kit Harington. The actor is making his first splash in the world of animation, lending his voice to Dreamworks forthcoming sequel as a hunky dragon catcher. Harington’s animated character didn’t showcase rock hard abs, rather … Some of the biggest biceps we’ve ever seen.
“It was one of the most amazing shots in the whole thing, the moving biceps,” Kit told us.
Also lending his voice to the film, Djimon Hounsou, who plays the voice of villain, Drago. HipHollywood caught up with the actor who expressed how surprisingly difficult it was to deliver voice over.
“For me at first it felt a little clinical,” Hounsou explained. “It was just you and the mic, you are not interacting with any other characters. You find a new freedom of interpretation.”
From good looking characters, to impressive singing by Gerard Butler, the film is an absolute must see.
How To Train Your Dragon 2 hits theaters June 13.
