Pete's Dragon

What a Brazzle Dazzle Day! Disney has unveiled a teaser poster for director David Lowery's new remake of Pete's Dragon. The original Pete's Dragon film is a Disney classic from 1977 featuring a mix of live-action and animation, and this new movie will also be a hybrid. My first thought is that this reminds me of Spike Jonze's Where the Wild Things Are, in a warm and fuzzy way, not a bad way. This reimagining takes us on an adventure of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliott, who just so happens to be a dragon. Sounds like fun. Starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Oakes Fegley, Wes Bentley, Karl Urban, Oona Laurence and Oscar winner Robert Redford. The first trailer debuts on ABC this Sunday, so check back.

Pete's Dragon

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, 2016. Impressions?

Got the Where The Wild Things Are vibe, I'll hopefully see this with my son, before he gets into horror and super violent action at age 10.

This looks a lot better than I was expecting. I like the direction they are pushing the adapted story.

Since the trailers from last years D23 Expo event have started getting released including this one that's coming out on Sunday, where does that put the online release for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales teaser trailer? Or maybe I should say when.
