I am so excited the Walt Disney Studios is planning to remake one of my favorite childhood movies – Pete’s Dragon. I can vividly remember my dad taking me to see the movie when it opened in 1977. Wow, I feel old! The visions of Helen Reddy, Mickey Rooney, and Elliott, that lovable dragon surely brings a smile to my face. Elliott just makes me laugh. I love to see him float down Main Street, U.S.A. during the Main Street Electrical Parade too.
The new Pete’s Dragon Poster is here. Walt Disney is a reimagining of the studio’s cherished family film about the adventures of a boy named Pete and his best friend Elliott, who just so happens to be a dragon. PETE’S DRAGON, starring Bryce Dallas Howard and Robert Redford flies into U.S. theaters on August 12th!
Also, be sure to catch the debut of the brand new teaser trailer during “Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60” on ABC Sunday night at 8:00PM EST.
