Familiar face returns for How to Train Your Dragon live-action film

For the live-action version of How to Train Your Dragon, a different cast will be used. One familiar face will reportedly return to play the same role.

It has been a popular strategy in recent years to adapt beloved animated films into live-action versions. Disney has already given many different franchises a new face in this way, such as The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin. Universal Pictures is now also going to give one from DreamWorks Animation a live-action treatment: How to Train Your Dragon.

The film will be a reboot, making casting for the project a major question. Jay Baruchel and America Ferrera, who play Hiccup and Astrid in the animated films, are much too old for the characters who would be 15 years old in the original. Their roles will be taken over by Mason Thames and Nico Parker.

Age alone is not a problem for one actor, namely Gerard Butler. The actor plays the Viking Stoick in How to Train Your Dragon, who is about 45 years old in the animated film. At 54 years old, the Scot would play the role again, Deadline reports. According to the studio, it would be an excellent opportunity to also pay tribute to the original cast.

A successful franchise

It is not surprising that How to Train Your Dragon was chosen as a franchise to be made into a live-action film. The series is very popular with the public. The three animated films together managed to bring in no less than 1.6 billion dollars.

The live-action movie of How to Train Your Dragon is scheduled to be released on March 14, 2025.


Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth could have its first female protagonist with an LGBTQ+ background

The Yakuza or “Like a Dragon” series has been very inclusive in the past and offered lots of side quests with positive views on different ___ualities and backgrounds. The series’ long-standing protagonist, Kazuma Kiryu, has undoubtedly often made an effort to support the marginalized and oppressed.

However, the representation of the LGBTQ+ community fell somewhat by the wayside. A circumstance that relates to the upcoming Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth could now change. A short clip A new video from Noisy Pixel suggests that Geomijul leader and new party member Seonhee could be bi___ual or lesbian.

In the scene in question, Seonhee appears to reprimand Nanba and Kiryu for not knowing that “women look at other women too” and that she herself “would be there in a heartbeat.” This single sentence is not a direct confirmation, as the series likes to skirt around the topic at times. But it’s enough to convince fans that developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studios has made Seonhee the series’ first protagonist who is part of the LGBTQ+ community.

Of course, there’s always a chance that fans will misinterpret the whole situation as Seonhee simply putting herself in the shoes of another person who is either bi___ual or lesbian. We don’t see the overall context of the scene here. Well, we don’t have to wait much longer until we know more.

Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth will be released worldwide on January 26, 2024 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, Xbox One and PCs.

The artist once again gave us his own interpretation of one of being inspired by what was said by the majority of the community; as we already mentioned, Selena Gomez has been compared to Videl on multiple occasions, and this explains the reason very well.

Dragon Ball Z: Videl as Fans Imagine

Based on Videl’s first design with pigtailsperfectly combined the features of Selena Gomez with which many fans remember fondly, and not being a Saiyan like Goku or an alien like Freeza, portraying her in real life is not only more comfortable, but also easy to imagine.

We wouldn’t like a look like that in a movie

Selena Gomez has not yet participated in the world of manga and/or animebut we have seen her in multiple animated films lending her voice as well as other feature films where she has excelled as the protagonist, although most of her fans locate her because of her musical career.

Videl left the fights behind after becoming the mother of Pan, although knowing Akira Toriyama, it is still possible that we will get to see her in the battle ring in the future, as many of us assumed that Master Roshi would never fight again, and we already know how that assumption ended.
