Must Watch: Sing Along with Pete in New TV Spot for 'Pete's Dragon'
"Look all around you and see… Deep in the forest, there dragons will be." Oh my goodness, this looks soo wonderful. Disney has unveiled a new TV spot for David Lowery's live-action take on Pete's Dragon, and it's an extended 60-second spot. Oakes Fegley plays Pete and we actually get to hear him singing in this trailer and it's so magical it will make you smile instantly. There's also a few new shots of Elliot the dragon, but this is really just an exciting little glimpse of the movie. The full cast includes Bryce Dallas Howard, Karl Urban, Robert Redford, Wes Bentley, Oona Laurence, Craig Hall and Isiah Whitlock Jr. It seems Disney is very confident with the movie that Lowery made, and is happy to start showing more and more of it leading up to the release later this summer. I'm pretty damn excited to see it myself, if I may say.
Here's the newest TV spot for David Lowery's Pete's Dragon, direct from Moviefone'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?
