Family is the focus in first ‘Pete’s Dragon’ clip

The first clip from Disney’s live-action remake of Pete’s Dragon arrived online and teased a moment between Bryce Dallas Howard’s Grace and her father, played by Robert Redford.

The search for the missing boy who’s been roaming the local woods for upwards of six years, Pete, is now linked to key elements of the film, more specifically — the dragon. There is a full synopsis below.

Pete’s Dragon also stars Oakes Fegley as the titular Pete, with Karl Urban (Star Trek Beyond, Judge Dredd, Riddick), Wes Bentley, Oona Laurence, Craig Hall, and Isiah Whitlock Jr.

Directed by David Lowery, Pete’s Dragon will open in theaters on August 12th.

Here’s the official plot synopsis for Pete’s Dragon:

For years, old wood carver Mr. Meacham (Robert Redford) has delighted local children with his tales of the fierce dragon that resides deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. To his daughter, Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard), who works as a forest ranger, these stories are little more than tall tales…until she meets Pete (Oakes Fegley). Pete is a mysterious 10-year-old with no family and no home who claims to live in the woods with a giant, green dragon named Elliott. And from Pete’s descriptions, Elliott seems remarkably similar to the dragon from Mr. Meacham’s stories. With the help of Natalie (Oona Laurence), an 11-year-old girl whose father Jack (Wes Bentley) owns the local lumber mill, Grace sets out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about this dragon.
