Now we know that two of them will features the voices of newcomers Cate Blanchett and Djimon Hounsou, while details on Kit Harington's character have been revealed.

According to our friends at Bleeding Cool, Harington "is on board to play a cocky dragon trapper called Eret, complete with swagger and a London accent; Djimon Honsou will voice a character taking those trapped dragons and turning them into an army; and Cate Blanchett plays Valka, a stealthy vigilante type set on rescuing as many of the dragons as possible."
