Pete's Dragon #7

It’s no secret that Disney’s live-action adaptation of their animated classics have helped them become a powerful box-office juggernaut. The studio has already released two this year alone, and have a third planned for release later this August, though you could say that it was an unexpected choice.

Pete’s Dragon is a new telling of the 1967 classic film from David Lowery. Starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Robert Redford, Wes Bently, Karl Urban, and newcomers Oakes Fegeley and Oona Laurence the film is a bit of an unconventional but welcomed adaptation, as it uses the bare bones elements of a savage boy being raised by a dragon, who then finds a home with his fellow humans, who try to figure out how he could live for so long on his own. While certain members of the small town community know of Pete’s secret friend, others see it as a threat, and are bent on capturing the creature.

We were recently invited to sit down with a group of journalists at the El Capitan last week to listen to David Lowery talk about the differences between the original and upcoming film, his process of bringing it from script to screen, the tone, songs, and more.

Check out the eight reasons why you should see this film below.

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.

Robert Redford

Marvel Studios has no problem reeling in some of the biggest names in Hollywood to star in their films. Tommy Lee Jones played the salty hard-nosed Colonel Chester Philips in Captain America: The First Avenger, a rare departure from the usual roles he’s known for. Now, it looks like Robert Redford will do the same. The actor who is well-known for running the business at the Sundance Film Festival and a few low key dramas, will now have a role in one of the most highly anticipated superhero films.

Deadline reports that the actor will play a senior level member of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the sequel, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Like most actors who sign on for roles in Marvel Studios films, they are generally contractually obligated to appear in a few more. It’s widely known that Samuel L. Jackson is signed on for multiple films, but the number of films that Redford would appear in if he does sign on has yet to be revealed.
