'How to Train Your Dragon 2' Adds Gay Character

By Stacy Lambe

In the sequel to the hit animated film, How to Train Your Dragon, one of the film's characters comes out. 

At the Cannes Film Festival, openly gay director and screenwriter Dean Deblois said that Gobber—voiced by Craig Ferguson—is coming out of the closet. 

"When we were recording Craig Ferguson, I had written the line, 'This is why I never got married," and he, as he often does, added it as an ad lib and he said, 'Yup, Gobber is coming out of the closet,'" DeBlois told E! News. "I think that's a really fun [and] daring move to put in. I love the idea that Gobber is Berk's resident gay."

The move comes after Mitch came out at the end of the 2012 animated film, ParaNorman, and the reveal that Oaken has a husband and kids in Disney's hit film, Frozen

How to Train Your Dragon 2 debuts theaters on June 13.
