The original Pete’s Dragon (1977) was a live-action and animated musical film from Walt Disney, much like Mary Poppins.
Fast forward almost 40 years and here we are, with another reboot/re-imagining/retelling. Will the new film be a success? Depending on how this and the new Jungle Book perform at the box office, we may see more and more of these Disney classics getting updated.
Release Date: August 12th, 2016
Directed By: David Lowery
Starring: Oakes Fegley, Bryce Dallas Howard, Robert Redford, Karl Urban ….
The adventure of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliott, who just so happens to be a dragon.
