Trailer Spotlight: Pete’s Dragon

Disney has gotten nostalgic of late, developing a new slate of live action iterations of their most popular animated classics. Well this time Disney has reinvigorated a dormant half animated film in Pete’s Dragon, and they have inlisted some big stars to lead the way. The first trailer has officialy dropped fot the al live action remake and it is Fantastical and vivid, and a surprising amount of fun. Pete’s Dragon is the story of a young orphaned boy you has an interesting best friend named Elliot, who just happens to be a dragon. Robert Redford plays an old wood carver whose tales of a fierce dragon that resides in the woods of the Pacific Northwest are shrugged off as nonsense, that is until his daughter (played by Bryce Dallas Howard), stumbles across Pete, who boasts of a friend that sounds a lot like the storied dragon. Howard’s character then sets out to determine where Pete came from and where he belongs.

So the dragon is seen only in glimpses here s it will be interesting to see just how long they keep him hidden. It will also be interesting to see the aesthetic of the dragon given the cartoonish animation from the original. The film brings an allstar cast and could prove to be an incredible retelling of a classic Disney story, but only time will tell. Pete’s Dragon is also starring Wes Bentley, Karl Urban, and Oona Laurence, Pete’s Dragon opens in theaters on August 12th.
