I like Game of Thrones‘ Daenerys Targaryen. Really, I do. And I hope she marches on King’s Landing real soon and opens up a can of fire-breathing whoop ass all over those Lannisters. But she’s not the Mother of Dragons. You know who’s the Mother of Dragons? Cate “I got me an Oscar in my kitchen AND my bathroom” Blanchett, that’s who. And she damn well proves it in the latest trailer for How to Train Your Dragon 2. Due out on June 13th from DreamWorks, the sequel to 2010’s megahit looks to offer more action, more drama, and more spectacle, as well as the voice of Blanchett as Hiccup’s long lost mom and fellow dragon devotee. Turns out the New Zealand actress does a Scottish brogue as perfectly as she does everything else. Figures. Check out the trailer below:
What do you think of Blanchett’s casting? Does her character seem like a smart addition and a natural fit for this saga? Let us know!
