Stoick Will Be Part of 'How To Train Your Dragon 3'

In How To Train Your Dragon 2, we sadly saw Stoick the Vast, Hiccup’s father, die – however, don’t write off seeing him in How To Train Your Dragon 3, because he will be.

Director Dean DeBlois revealed to EW in a new interview that Stoick, voiced by Gerard Butler, will be in the final film of the franchise – just in flashbacks and flash forwards.

The movie will bring “Stoick back to help guide Hiccup in his chiefly responsibility as protector of Berk.”

EW dishes on one flashback scene where toddler Hiccup recalls Stoick’s tale about a secret home of dragons hidden behind a great waterfall somewhere at the edge of the world. Stoick’s dream was to seal it off and stop the fighting between humans and dragons.

Hiccup, however, sees the utopia as a potential new home where the people (and pets) of Berk can safely relocate.

Stoick’s inclusion “offers a warm hug to the character one last time,” the director shared. “The overall theme of the story is letting go, or finding the wisdom to let go, rather. So much of Hiccup’s identity, as a leader and an adult, is because of his relationship with Toothless. But if Toothless is not there, who is Hiccup?”

How To Train Your Dragon 3 flies into theaters in March 2019.
