We’re one week removed from Disney’s Pete’s Dragon remake, and we have a brace of new clip for your viewing pleasure, featuring our best look yet at the wonderfully designed, titular creature. The original captured the imagination of many a child (myself included) growing up, and thankfully that same magic seems to have retained for this new version of the classic story. Check out the clips below.
Released: August 12, 2016
Synopsis: 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.
