One of this summer's most anticipated family movies has finally debuted a full-length trailer! Check-out the latest sneak peek from Disney's Pete's Dragon which features spectacular never-before-seen footage of Pete's dragon, Elliott in action. The film, which is a reimagining of Disney's cherished family film from 1977, stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Oakes Fegley, Wes Bentley, Karl Urban, Oona Laurence and Robert Redford. The movie is directed by David Lowery, and opens nationwide on August 12, 2016.
Pete (Oakes Fegley) 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. 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.
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. Pete's Dragon also stars Karl Urban, Craig Hall, Isiah Whitlock Jr. and Marcus Henderson.
Disney debuted the first trailer in February, during ABC's The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60 TV special. Disney also previewed this remake during their CinemaCon presentation in April. Now we get to see Elliott take flight for ourselves in this exciting teaser of what's to come. Pete's Dragon could be one of this summer's last big hits at the box office, opening in theaters August 12, going up against Sony's Sausage Party, Universal's Spectral and Paramount's Florence Foster Jenkins.
Along with the new trailer, Disney has also unleashed several new photos from Pete's Dragon, giving us an even better look at Elliott. Yesterday, the studio released the official one-sheet poster which shows Pete wrapped in Elliott's fuzzy tale. We have it all for you to check out right now courtsey of Youtube.
