How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World brings together the voice cast of the trilogy so far with several new characters. Here's a guide of everybody you'll hear in the movie and where you may recognize them from.
Starting with How To Train Your Dragon back in 2010, the trilogy has followed the friendship of Hiccup and Toothless as they brought together once mortal enemies Vikings and dragons. The second movie in the trilogy, How To Train Your Dragon 2, was released in 2014 and saw Hiccup and his clan fighting back against an evil group of dragon trappers. This concluding chapter, The Hidden World, picks up one year after the events of the sequel, with Toothless and Hiccup still rescuing captured dragons. However, their efforts have resulted in Berk becoming overpopulated, prompting Hiccup to try and find the hidden world; a safe haven for dragons that his late father had told him about. Bringing an end to the beloved trilogy, many original cast members are back for How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World. Here's who's voicing who.
