There is a whole lot of green for the Premiere of ‘Pete’s Dragon’.
That kind of makes sense when the main star is a giant green dragon. ‘Pete’s Dragon’ is a reboot that doesn’t have much to do with the original. The 1977 Pete’s Dragon is a live action film while Pete is an animated dragon. The original was a lot more cartoony and even featured some Oscar nominated songs. This updated version will have no singing, dancing, or that cartoon feel.
The film still has that sense of youth, according to the cast. In the above interview from World Premiere of ‘Pete’s Dragon’ at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles, hear why the new Pete, Oakes Fegley, thinks people of all ages will love the film , Wes Bentley is excited for his son to finally meet Elliot, and Bryce Dallas Howard is excited for people to finally see the film, as well as Disney, reminds adults and kids that they can still have that child-like wonder.
Pete’s Dragon releases tomorrow, August 12, 2016.
