Following 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.
Earlier this evening, during ABC’s ‘The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60’ special, Walt Disney Studios released the first teaser trailer for its upcoming remake of Pete’s Dragon (August 12, 2016), which you can find embedded below.
Walt Disney Studios has released a motion poster for its upcoming remake of Pete’s Dragon (August 12, 2016). With no official word, we still expect the first teaser trailer to be released this Sunday during ABC’s ‘The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60’ (see our original report here).
If you hadn’t seen the presentation at the Disney D23 Expo last year, you might have reason to believe that Disney’s Pete’s Dragon remake is as imaginary as Elliott himself. With the movie debuting on August 12, 2016, Disney marketing has had its hands full with films like The Finest Hours, Zootopia, Captain America: Civil War, The Jungle Book, Alice Through The Looking Glass, Finding Dory and The BFG to promote. Yet the public has still seen more of Moana and Doctor Strange than it has of Pete’s Dragon — not even a first look image.
Walt Disney Studios has provided us with a high resolution version of the first of three posters for Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book (April 15, 2016) which will form a triptych. The first (and left) panel features King Louie and Kaa, voiced by Christopher Walken and Scarlett Johansson, respectively.
In honor of the newly released teaser trailer for The Jungle Book (April 15, 2016), which you can find embedded below, Walt Disney Studios has provided us with high resolution versions of the newly released stills from the film, which you can find in our gallery embedded below.
Walt Disney Studios has released the first teaser for The Jungle Book (April 15, 2016), which you can find embedded below.Directed by Jon Favreau, based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, The Jungle Book is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray). Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire.
In conjunction with Walt Disney Studios’ remake of Pete’s Dragon (August 12, 2016), Disney Editions will be releasing a 128-page volume dedicated to Elliott and all of the other famous — and infamous — dragons from Disney’s films and theme parks. Among the iconic dragons in the book are: Mushu from Mulan, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, Madam Mim from The Sword in the Stone, the Jabberwocky from Alice in Wonderland, Queen Narissa from Enchanted, Hades’ hydra from Hercules, the Reluctant Dragon, Figment from Disney’s Epcot and more. The publisher’s description is as follows:
According to Box Office Mojo, Disney’s remake of the 1977 classic Pete’s Dragon has been given a theatrical release date of August 12, 2016. The film has made news in recent days via reports that Michael C. Hall and Wes Bentley are now attrached to the project that also involves Robert Redford, Bryce Dallas Howard and Oakes Fegley.
In other news, Jon Favreau’s celebrity-filled live-action/CGI hybrid The Jungle Book has been pushed back about six months so it will now debut in theaters on April 15, 2016 (formerly October 9, 2015)
Celebrating its 35th anniversary and ahead of any official announcements, the official Disney DVD site is reporting that the beloved classic Pete’s Dragon will be making its debut on blu-ray on October 2, 2012.
While Disney announced earlier this year that the film would be released on blu-ray this year, information surrounding the release outside of the site seems to be as elusive as Elliott himself. To complicate matters further, the DVD site has proven to be very unreliable in terms of release dates in recent months.
