The original Pete’s Dragon was a mix of live action and animation that came out back in 1977. Now in 2016, not only the look of the dragon will be changed, but also the music and story.
Pete (newcomber Oakes Fegley) was orphaned after his parents died in a car accident. Pete fled to the forest where he befriended a dragon named Elliot who raises him for 6 years. A forest ranger (Bryce Dallas Howard) finds him and now must bring the feral child back into society. ‘Pete’s Dragon’ also stars Wes Bentley, Michael C Hall, and Robert Redford.
Pete’s Dragon will be in theaters August 12, 2016.
