Full Trailer for Disney's New 'Pete's Dragon' Directed by David Lowery
"I need to get back to him. He gets scared when I'm gone." Disney has debuted the new full-length trailer for their upcoming remake of Pete's Dragon, this time starring young actor Oakes Fegley as Pete. The teaser first released earlier this year was truly just a tease and didn't even show the dragon at all, now we finally get a good look at the friendly dragon Elliot in this trailer. And he actually looks pretty dang good. The full cast includes Bryce Dallas Howard, Karl Urban, Robert Redford, Wes Bentley, Oona Laurence, Craig Hall and Isiah Whitlock Jr. This looks wonderful, the score helps, but it also seems like the kind of movie that is both magical and exciting to watch. I'm impressed - can't wait to see this now.
Here's the second trailer (+ poster) for David Lowery's Pete's Dragon, direct from Disney's YouTube:
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. Directed by David Lowery (Ain't Them Bodies Saints), Disney's Pete's Dragon opens in theaters on August 12th this summer. You in?
