What does a dragon look like in real life? Let Disney show you! The first trailer for the remake of ‘Pete’s Dragon’ has arrived, and it brings the adorable green dragon to life. Watch the amazing teaser here!
It’s finally here! Disney unveiled the first teaser trailer for the reimagining of its 1977 classic Pete’s Dragon three years after it was officially announced, and it’s already proof that this movie is going to be incredible. The 1 1/2-minute trailer only gives a quick glimpse of Elliott the dragon, but that’s enough to know that the new Pete’s Dragon is going to be one epic remake of the old movie!
The beautiful scenery and mystical sounds in the teaser’s opening is breathtaking in itself, but the trailer only gets better from there. The first shot of Pete (Oakes Fegley) shows him running through the forest and climbing trees, as the young boy had lived in the woods for six years. “You don’t survive in a forest for six years alone,” says Robert Redford, who plays the father of forest ranger Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard) in the film. “He says he wasn’t alone,” she replies. Dun dun dun!
While the trailer gives off a rather spooky vibe, there’s actually nothing spooky about it! In fact, when Pete first encounters the dragon in the clip, he seems happy as can be. Plus, the coolest shot of the trailer shows Elliott in flight, and it’s totally awesome!
This remake does seem to be a little more dramatic than the original — especially because Elliott is no longer animated, thanks to CGI — but it looks like it definitely won’t let down those who loved the movie way back when. The film is set for release on August 12, 2016, and although that’s still six months away, this teaser certainly has us counting the days already!
