Pete’s Dragon was one of the oldest Disney movies I can remember seeing in theaters. I was roughly 5 years old and completely in awe at the live action movie that starred a very animated dragon named Elliot.
Now, nearly 40 years later, Disney is bring Pete and his imaginary-not-so-imaginary dragon friend back to the big screen in the new Pete’s Dragon film hitting theaters on August 12. This time around, Elliot isn’t a cute cartoony animated dragon. Nope. Thanks to massive advances in technology, he’s a CGI-birthed beast, but one that I 100% believe can live and breathe right next to us humans.
