Cate Blanchett has joined the cast of How To Train Your Dragon 2.

The Oscar-winner will voice a "feral vigilante intent on freeing enslaved dragons" in the animated follow-up, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog.

Eragon star Djimon Hounsou and Game Of Thrones actor Kit Harington have also signed up for the sequel, with Djimon voicing a crazed dragon hunter, and Kit as a dragon trapper.

The announcement was made at Comic-Con, where a clip from the upcoming film was shown.

The first film was a critical and commercial success when it was released in 2010.

It featured the voices of a host of stars, including Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, America Ferrera, Kristen Wiig, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and David Tennant.

Jay, America and Christopher are also included in the voice cast for spin-off TV show DreamWorks Dragons: Riders Of Berk.
