About the Movie

For years, old Mr. Meacham has delighted local children with tales of the fierce dragon that resides deep in the Pacific Northwest woods. To his daughter Grace, a forest ranger, the stories are little more than tall tales…until she meets Pete, a mysterious 10-year-old with no family or home, who claims to live in the woods with a giant green dragon named Elliot. With the help of 11-year-old Natalie, whose father owns the local lumber mill, Grace sets out to learn where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about this dragon.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Thanks to director David Lowery's humanizing magic, this tale of an orphan boy and a dragon is that rare family film you really can take to heart. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Aug 11, 2016

Fresh: "Pete's Dragon" conjures the primordial power of fantasy itself. – Richard Brody, New Yorker, Aug 12, 2016

Fresh: Rather than a big, special effects-driven blockbuster, this remake of the 1977 Disney musical has the homespun feel of a children's book come-to-life. – Adam Graham, Detroit News, Aug 12, 2016

Fresh: Pete's Dragon may owe more to E.T.: The Extraterrestrial, along with a dash of The Jungle Book,than it does to the original Pete's Dragon. – Nancy Churnin, Dallas Morning News, Aug 11, 2016

WOW...Everything I imagined it would be.....

Saw this opening night and couldn't take my eyes of the screen. What a great family movie and the characters were really good...I loved Elliot and Pete, they were adorable. The actors did a splendid job which really made the pace of the movie run smooth. I can't wait to see it again. I already pre-ordered it on ITunes.

Beautiful and emotional movie

The movie is beautiful and its emotional and if you buy this movie trust me ur not going to regret it so buy the movie and it's a great movie to watch with your kids of you have any and and if ur a kid or a teenager reading this I would ask ur parents permission to buy it you know why cuz I'm a kid and I just finished watching this movie

New Favorite Disney Movie!!

I saw this last night and I will admit, way better than the original movie! Different, but better storyline, better actors, and of course, Elliot!! Bryce Dallas Howard and Robert Redford was amazing!! And so was Wes Bentley and Karl Urban. But Oakes Fegley (Pete) and Oona Lawrence (Natalie) were amazing!!! But Elliot stole the show! It's sad, but has humor in it, and it's a movie that makes you want to watch it over and over again. Lots of action in the second half of the movie, but it's really really good!!! I recommend everyone to see this, even if you're not a Disney fan or even saw the original 1977 version :) πŸ²πŸ²πŸ²πŸ²πŸ²πŸ²πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ˜€πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜€πŸ˜€
