How to Train Your Dragon is one of those movies that is utterly beloved. When Kit Harrington and Djimon Hounsou signed on to join the series for How to Train Your Dragon 2, they immediately felt the love.
For Hounsou, it meant a connection with his child. “My son, it means the world,” he said. “And all actors, it’s a trait that we all want to be part of something like this.”
For Harrington, who we recently caught up with for Pompeii, he is proud of the fact that he is part of one of those pop culture moments that guides generations into their future.
“Kids grow up with these now and they’ll look back and say, ‘Do you remember Dragon, Dragon 2 (and possibly) Dragon 3?’ To be a voice in one of those and to be a part of a kid growing up is amazing to me,” Harrington said.
Both salute the director Dean DeBlois, who also wrote the two movies, for having the vision that made this world transcend animated features to become just simply... an adored movie.
