Disney is bringing back one of our favorite classics from the 1970’s, Pete’s Dragon; feel good story with an A-list cast, that will make you a believer all over again. As Film Critic, Peter DeBrudge of Variety Magazine put it, “Director David Lowery puts a totally new spin on the Disney classic, inviting audiences to believe in a boy and his pet dragon”.
Meacham (Robert Redford), a woodcarver, delights local children with stories of a mysterious dragon that lives deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. His daughter Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard) believes these are just tall tales, until she meets Pete (Oakes Fegley), a 10-year-old orphan who says he lives in the woods with a giant, friendly dragon. With help from a young girl named Natalie (Oona Laurence), Grace sets out to investigate if this fantastic claim can be true.
We go behind the scenes with Hollywood legend Robert Redford who shares what it was like to work with Bryce Dallas Howard, and more!
Pete’s Dragon opens in theatres nationwide this Friday, August 12th.
