Movie Review: ‘Pete’s Dragon’
  |  @   |  

Pete’s Dragon
Director: David Lowery
Screenwriter: David Lowery, Toby Halbrooks
Cast: Bryce Dallas Howard, Oakes Fegley, Wes Bentley, Karl Urban, Oona Laurence, Robert Redford
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG | 103 Minutes
Release Date: August 12, 2016

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.

Interview: Robert Redford On ‘Pete’s Dragon,’ His Legacy, and Future Of The Sundance Film Festival
  |  @   |  

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.

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.

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.
