Back in October, DreamWorks Animation announced their intentions to produce a sequel to their hit animated title, How to Train Your Dragon. At that time, it was also revealed that the entire cast of the original movie — including Jay Baruchel, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T.J. Miller, and Kristen Wiig — would be returning for How to Train Your Dragon 2 as well…except for one.

At that time it was unclear whether the biggest star on their roster, Gerard Butler, would be back or not. Now comes word that Mr. Butler has worked all of the dirty details out, and will indeed be back to voice the role of Stoick, the strong warrior father of Hiccup (Baruchel).

Speaking to Empire Magazine recently, Dean DeBlois, who co-directed the first film with Chris Sanders but will be writing and directing the sequel alone, confirmed that the entire cast would be returning, and that just a week prior he heard confirmation that the one final piece, Butler, was locked in officially.

DeBlois also spoke about his pitch to the studio for his sequel:

What I presented to them was the second act of a larger story. So the film takes on much more breadth, it’s really quite epic. We leave the first film with these Vikings on the backs of dragons, so the world just opens up and it just expands exponentially.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 is expected to hit theaters in 2013.
