Did you know that the original Pete’s Dragon will be coming up on its 40th anniversary next year? It’s true! It has been 40 years since the Disney debut of Pete and Elliott as the bestest friends anyone could ever dream of. Can you imagine a better way to kickoff that celebration than with a late summer release of a Pete’s Dragon remake?
Do I really have to wait until August?
This summer we all get to share our love for Pete’s Dragon with our own children. I cannot wait to have my little cutie-pies running around holding plush Elliott toys and wearing his dragon apparel — such cuteness shouldn’t be delayed. I think ultimate Pete’s Dragon fans should petition Disney to push up the release to March, or even April (smile).
The first Pete’s Dragon movie poster is now released!
It’s getting real!!!! — Somebody pinch me!
What did you think of the motion movie poster (above)?

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. Disney’s “Pete’s Dragon” opens in U.S. theaters on August 12, 2016.
