One of my absolute favorite movies from my childhood is Pete’s Dragon. When I got the email that Disney is remaking it – I may have squealed a bit. The trailer is now out, and I’m so excited!! Check it out.
Starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Oakes Fegley and Robert Redford, this reimagining of Pete’s Dragon can’t get here soon enough! While I limit our kids tv time, like I assume most parents do, I really do enjoy family movie nights especially when it’s sharing one of my favorite stories via film.
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 Elliott. And from Pete’s descriptions, Elliott 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. Disney’s “Pete’s Dragon” opens in U.S. theaters on August 12, 2016.
