TRAILER: Disney’s “Reimagining” of ‘Pete’s Dragon’

Check-out the official trailer for Disney’s Pete’s Dragon, which features some new footage of Pete’s dragon, Elliot. The film, which is a reimagining of Disney’s 1977 live-action/animation movie, stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Oakes Fegley, Wes Bentley, Karl Urban and Robert Redford and is directed by David Lowery, opens nationwide on August 12th, 2016. Here’s our latest look:

The new Pete’s Dragon is written by Lowery & Toby Halbrooks based on a story by Seton I. Miller and S.S. Field and produced by Jim Whitaker, p.g.a., with Barrie M. Osborne serving as executive producer.

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.
