Meet Pete’s Dragon

One of the films I’m most intrigued about this year is the remake of Pete’s Dragon.

Based on the 1977 Disney film, the remake is directed by David Lowery.

The film will blend live action and CGI to tell the story of the special bond between an orphaned boy, Pete, and his best friend, Elliott, who just happens to be a dragon.

It stars Bryce Dallas Howard as Grace, a park ranger who discovers the existence of Elliott; 10-year-old Oakes Fegley as Pete; Wes Bentley as Jack, a local mill owner; Karl Urban as Jack’s brother, Gavin; Oona Laurence as Natalie, the young girl who befriends Pete; and Robert Redford as Grace’s father.

Pete’s Dragon is due in cinemas in August, here’s its first teaser poster.
