This year’s Pete’s Dragon comes off the heels of Disney’s recent live-action adaptation successes like Maleficent, Cinderella, and The Jungle Book. While the original film was never as popular as some of these remakes, it has gained a cult following and David Lowery’s reimagining resonated with critics. Now, the film is available for you to own for your home entertainment pleasure on Blu-ray/DVD or Digital Download.
In this reimagining, a 10-year-old boy orphaned boy named Pete (Oakes Fegley) is discovered living in the woods, and he claims to have been there with his friend Elliot, a giant green dragon. A local park ranger named Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard) takes him in, while trying to discover the truth about Pete’s situation. While his story seems far-fetched, Grace’s dad (Robert Redford) has been telling the tale of a mythical dragon in the woods for decades. Meanwhile, Elliot goes looking for Pete, only to come up against Karl Urban’s crew of lumberjacks, who are on the hunt for the dragon.

Looking at David Lowery‘s Pete’s Dragon, you might not have known that it was based on the 1977 Disney film of the same name. In fact, the only similarity that the two films share between each other is that there is boy whose friend just so happens to be a real live dragon. Normally these reimagined stories would involve contemporary tweaks while staying true to the source material. Just look at The Jungle Book or Cinderella. But Lowery didn’t set out to that with Pete’s Dragon. Instead, his film deconstructs the idea of a remake of a Disney classic, and he turns it into something that resembles those childhood bedtime stories that your parents would read to you.
Walt Disney Studios’ Pete’s Dragon is not like any of the reboots of their classic films. Unlike most reboots that add tweaks to make the film more contemporary while paying respect to the original source material. David Lowery‘s vision sees the tale about a boy and his pet as an old small town folk legend whose tale differs from each storyteller. The film features an all-star supporting cast starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Wes Bentley, Karl Urban, and Robert Redford.
We were fortunate to sit down with a group of our fellow journalists to talk to Redford about his role in the film, the legacy he is laying out, and the future of the Sundance Film Festival. Check out the full interview below.
