Ever since our first peek at Elliott a few months ago, I’ve been waiting for the next trailer with new scenes showcasing the reimagining of Elliott, Pete’s Dragon! Today is the day, Disney released a fun new trailer and Elliott has lots of screen time!
Check out the new Pete’s Dragon trailer!
I love how Elliott is still very green like the original and it totally makes sense given that he needs to camouflage into the magnificent greenery of the Pacific Northwest!
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.
