Disney’s Pete’s Dragon Teaser Trailer is Amazing (See It Here)

Petes Dragon

This past weekend the teaser trailer for the reimagining of Disney’s Pete’s Dragon was released and all I can say is wow. The poster was released just a few days ago and I knew at that moment that the movie was going to be just as good as I hoped. The poster is incredible (see it below) and now the trailer has me even more excited. I must admit, I did see some of this footage at the D23 Expo last summer and so I knew what to expect. But it was so amazing to be able to watch it again (and again and again) this time. Pete’s Dragon was one of my favorite movies growing up and I have since watched it with my daughters. They are just as excited as I am about the reimagining and I am planning on taking them to go see it when it flies into theaters everywhere August 12th, 2016!

Petes Dragon

A reimagining of Disney’s cherished family film, “Pete’s Dragon” is the adventure of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliott, who just so happens to be a dragon. “Pete’s Dragon” stars Bryce Dallas Howard (“Jurassic World”), Oakes Fegley (“This is Where I Leave You”), Wes Bentley (“The Hunger Games”), Karl Urban (“Star Trek”), Oona Laurence (“Southpaw”) and Oscar winner Robert Redford (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”). The film, which is directed by David Lowery (“Ain’t Them Bodies Saints”), is written by Lowery & Toby Halbrooks based on a story by Seton I. Miller and S.S. Field and produced by Jim Whitaker, p.g.a. (“The Finest Hours,” “Friday Night Lights”), with Barrie M. Osborne (“The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring,” “The Great Gatsby”) serving as executive producer.

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.

It's always funny to me when people think Karl Urban and connect him to Star Trek. I think Karl Urban and I see Eomer from The Lord of the Rings.
