Nick Frost (“Hot Fuzz,” “Shaun of the Dead”) has joined the cast of the live-action adaptation of DreamWorks Animation’s “How to Train Your Dragon” at Universal Pictures.

Mason Thames (“The Black Phone”) and Nico Parker (“The Last of Us”) are already set to star as Hiccup and Astrid, the young teens who befriend dragons.

Gerard Butler, who voiced the leader of the Viking clan and Hiccup’s father Stoick the Vast, is reprising that role in person here. Frost will play Gobber the Belch, the trusted friend and adviser of Stoick.

The story focuses on the special friendship between a young and unheroic Viking boy named Hiccup, and Toothless, an injured dragon he nurses back to health. The movies chronicled the pair’s quest to combat humanity’s prejudice against dragons.

Dean DeBlois, who co-wrote and directed the original trilogy, will return as writer, director and producer.

Marc Platt and Adam Siegel will prosuce and Universal has set a June 13th 2025 release date.
