Interview: Bryce Dallas Howard Talks ‘Pete’s Dragon,’ ‘Jurassic World 2,’ More
  |  @   |  

Disney’s Pete’s Dragon is not your ordinary reimagining of a Disney classic. Director David Lowery brings a new sense of wonder and imagination to the Disney classic, while still maintaining the themes about a 10-year-old boy named Pete (Oakes Fegley) who has lived in the forest with his best friend Elliot, who just so happens to be a dragon. In the film we are introduced to Grace (played by Bryce Dallas Howard), a forest ranger who forges a maternal relationship with the young boy and helps him adjust to living with his fellow humans while also coming to terms with the fact that there has been a dragon living in a forest she regularly patrols.

We were invited to sit down with a group of journalists to talk about the new vision of Pete’s Dragon with Howard, where she shared her experience working on the film with her fellow co-stars. Also talked about below is what you can expect to see in Jurassic World 2 and more.

‘Pete’s Dragon’ Interview: Oakes Fegley and Oona Laurence Talk Furry Dragons, Doing Their Own Stunts, More
  |  @   |  

Disney’s reimagining of the classic Pete’s Dragon will be hitting theaters at the tail end of the summer blockbuster season. It was a bit surprising to hear that the film would be getting the treatment given that the original never really found huge success, but did get a cult following. However, with David Lowery‘s directing and the cast’s young leads, Oakes Fegley and Oona Laurence, the film has found place where it can stand alongside some of the great live-action adaptations the studio has been delivering, and stand side by side with the original film.

We were invited to sit down with the cast and Lowery during the film’s press day, so we will have a lot of content from the film coming in the next few weeks leading up to the release. We had a chance to talk to the real stars of the film, Fegely and Laurence, who play Pete and Natalie, respectively. During our interview, we talked about what sort of games they played during breaks in between sets, what it was like working with a dragon that wasn’t there, what doing their own stunts was like (yes, they did their own stunts), and much more.

Check out what they had to say after the jump.

New Trailer For Disney’s Live Action ‘Pete’s Dragon’ Released
  |  @   |  

Disney has released an official trailer for Pete’s Dragon, the next in the line of remakes of their older movies. We saw a teaser trailer for the movie released back in February.

Unlike most of Disney’s remakes lately, which are updated live-action takes on their classic animated features, this one is a remake of their 1977 feature of the same name, which was a mixture of live-action and animation.

You can read more about the movie, give the new trailer a watch, and see a new poster below.

First ‘Pete’s Dragon’ Poster Plays A Game Of Hide-And-Go-Seek

Say what you will about Disney reimagining their animated classics into live-action films, but the concept has been a box office smash for them. But Pete’s Dragon was one of those rare films to be hybrid of live-action and cel animation. It wasn’t as big of a hit with the masses, but it did gain a cult fan base, and soon it will be joining the live-animation reimaginings that came before it like Alice In Wonderland, Maleficent, and Cinderella.

Disney debuted very brief glimpses of the film during the D23 Expo in August of last year, and we haven’t heard much since then. Now, the studio has revealed the first motion poster for Pete’s Dragon. Check it out here below.
