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.
For years, old wood carver Mr. Meacham (Robert Redford) has delighted local children with his tales of the fierce dragon that resides deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. To his daughter, Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard), who works as a forest ranger, these stories are little more than tall tales…until she meets Pete (Oakes Fegley). Pete is a mysterious 10-year-old with no family and no home who claims to live in the woods with a giant, green dragon named Elliot. And from Pete’s descriptions, Elliot seems remarkably similar to the dragon from Mr. Meacham’s stories. With the help of Natalie (Oona Laurence), an 11-year-old girl whose father Jack (Wes Bentley) owns the local lumber mill, Grace sets out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about this dragon.
I’m not going to spoil anything about the new movie and in fact, don’t even know if it’s going to follow the same basic storyline. All I remember from the original is a lighthouse and how Pete and Elliot created such a strong bond of friendship. If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, take a look.
