Ruth Codd, who recently starred in “The Fall of the House of Usher,” is set to join the live-action adaptation of “How To Train Your Dragon” as Phlegma, a Viking residing in the same village as Hiccup and Astrid. In the animated version, Phlegma was voiced by Ashley Jensen. The live-action movie is scheduled to premiere in theaters on June 13, 2025.

The upcoming “How To Train Your Dragon” film will retain the core storyline from the animated feature. It revolves around Hiccup, the son of Stoick the Vast, who doesn’t conform to traditional Viking expectations. Hiccup’s life takes a dramatic turn when he encounters Toothless, a Night Fury dragon. Their budding friendship challenges the Vikings’ belief that dragons should be hunted. Dean DeBlois, who wrote and co-directed the animated film based on Cressida Cowell’s characters, is returning to write and direct this live-action adaptation.

Currently in production, the live-action cast includes Nick Frost, Julian Dennison, Bronwyn James, and Harry Trevaldwyn. The decision to adapt “How To Train Your Dragon” into live-action is influenced by the success Disney has had with its live-action versions of animated classics. Additionally, a new How to Train Your Dragon-themed land is set to open at Universal’s upcoming Orlando theme park, Epic Universe, in 2025.

Ruth Codd’s career trajectory is notable. Before delving into acting, she was a professional makeup artist and gained significant popularity on TikTok. Her breakthrough role came in “The Midnight Club,” a series by Mike Flanagan, who subsequently cast her in “The Fall of the House of Usher.” In this series, Codd portrayed Juno Usher, a pivotal character within a family entangled in a pharmaceutical empire’s power struggles. Codd’s role in “How To Train Your Dragon” is expected to continue her streak of success.

The live-action “How To Train Your Dragon” film is set to soar into theaters next summer on June 13, 2025. Fans can look forward to updates from Collider. For those who want to revisit the original, the animated feature is available on Prime Video.
