Disney’s ‘Pete’s Dragon’ Remake Poster in High Resolution, New Hi-Res Stills Featuring Eliot


Pete's Dragon PosterFollowing the release of the first teaser trailer for its Disney’s upcoming remake of Pete’s Dragon (August 12, 2016), Walt Disney Studios has provided us with three hi-res stills from the film, one of which offers a very up close look at Elliott the 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… util 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 Elliot. And from Pete’s description, Elliot seems remarkably similar to the dragon from Mr. Meacham’s stories. With the help of Natalie (Oona Laurence), an 11-year-old-girl who father Jack (Wes Bentley) owns the local lumber mill, Grace sets out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs and the truth abut this dragon.

The film, which is directed by David Lowery, is written by Lowery & Toby Holbrooks based on a story by Seton I. Miller and and S.S. Field and produced by Jim Whitaker, p.g.a., with Barrie M. Osborne serving as executive producer.

  1. As awesome as this looks, I wish it wasn’t considers a reboot/remake/reimagining. Elliott left Pete to go help another child which he apparently does, and has done for many many years, often. This could’ve easily just been the tale of the next child he helps. This explanation was already built into the ending of the original film. And Eliott’s look could change depending on the needs of the child and environment he is needed. I’d imagine if he went to China, he’d look like a luck dragon (like Falcor in NeverEnding Story — or perhaps that WAS Eliott helping Atreyu and Bastian)
    Point is, this whole trend of reboots, while updating effects and bringing the acting and story to a more modern level, is getting annoying.
    A great sequel is far better and easier than having to spend so much time to explain the new rules of the reboot’s changes when we already could’ve been immersed in the new story with the already existing story, just continued.
    That said, I canny wait to see this. Pete’s Dragon is one of my absolute favourite movies of all time and I had the pleasure to meet and speak with the amazing Helen Reddy not too long ago.
