While working in movies is an awesome job, but, like Cypress Hill said in their song ‘Rock Superstar’, “It’s a fun job, but it’s still a job”.
Days are long and hard and it’s exhausting, and like a normal job, you’re not going to like everyone you work with. Most of the times actors try to hide it when they don’t like someone, but sometimes it leaks out and it’s in all of the headlines. Unfortunately, it’s even worse with working with animals. A common quote of working in film is “Never work with children or animals”. Pete’s Dragon does both.
In Disney’s newest film ‘Pete’s Dragon’ Bryce Dallas Howard stars as Grace, a forest ranger who finds the young Pete (Oakes Fegley), a boy that survived in a forest for 6 years. Their costar is Elliot, a 20 foot tall, hairy, green, sometimes invisible, Dragon. In the above documentary (mockumentary) Bryce gives us the details on what it’s like working with Elliot including hair that is everywhere, dragon training, crafty problems, and just general danger. I wonder if Game of Thrones has three times the trouble with their three dragons?
Pete’s Dragon releases on August 12, 2016.
