When it comes to Game of Thrones, plenty of fans have been wondering what would happen if the blond mother of dragons Daenerys Targaryen crossed paths with disgraced Crow and mysterious bastard Jon Snow. George R.R. Martin knows how long until that might occur. But in the meantime, How to Train Your Dragon 2 is giving us a taste of how it might go down with a new clip featuring Astrid, the movie's blonde dragon-lover, and Eret Son of Eret, the new character voiced by Game of Thrones's Kit Harington.
The official synopsis for How to Train Your Dragon 2 is as follows:
The thrilling second chapter of the epic HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON trilogy brings us back to the fantastical world of Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and Toothless five years after the two have successfully united dragons and vikings on the island of Berk. While Astrid (America Ferrera), Snoutlout (Jonah Hill) and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island's new favorite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new worlds. When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace.
So how does Eret Son of Eret factor into all this? He's a henchman of Drago Bludvist, How to Train Your Dragon 2's villain (voiced by Djimon Hounsou/). When Hiccup's crew needs to find this evil warlord's camp, they turn to (or kidnap and threaten with dragon dropping) Kit Harington's character. Do you think Eret Son of Eret bears any physical resemblance to Harrington's Game of Thrones character, Jon Snow?
To me it seems the most they have in common is a penchant for furs and unfortunate facial hair.
In case you're wondering what Hiccup and Toothless have been up to since we saw them last, enjoy this short and sweet clip that gives a glimpse into their discoveries:
How to Train Your Dragon 2 opens June 13th.
