First teaser, poster for Disney’s reboot of ‘Pete’s Dragon’

Disney announced the film three years ago and previewed some footage last year at D23 and now Disney drops the first official teaser and poster for Pete’s Dragon, a remake of its 1977 semi-classic Pete’s Dragon. The brand new clip during ABC’s “Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60.”

The story centers on a young orphan named Pete who has managed to survive living alone in the woods thanks to his friendship with an invisible dragon named Elliott. He’s eventually taken in by Grace, a local forest ranger whose father has long delighted local children with stories of a mysterious dragon living in the wilderness.

From Pete’s descriptions, Elliott seems remarkably similar to the dragon from her father’s stories. With the help of Natalie, an 11-year-old girl whose father Jack owns the local lumber mill, Grace aims to discover where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about this dragon.

The new Pete’s Dragon is directed by David Lowery and written by Lowery and Toby Halbrooks, it stars Oakes Fegley as Pete, Oona Laurence as Natalie, Bryce Dallas Howard as Grace Meacham, Wes Bentley as Jack, Karl Urban as Gavin, and Robert Redford as Grace’s father.

Pete’s Dragon arrives in theaters on August 12, 2016.

Synopsis:

A reimagining of Disney’s cherished family film, “Pete’s Dragon” is the adventure of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliott, who just so happens to be a dragon. “Pete’sDragon” stars Bryce Dallas Howard (“Jurassic World”), Oakes Fegley (“This is Where I Leave You”), Wes Bentley (“The Hunger Games”), Karl Urban (“Star Trek”), Oona Laurence (“Southpaw”) and Oscar® winner Robert Redford (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”). The film, which is directed by David Lowery (“Ain’t Them Bodies Saints”), is written by Lowery & Toby Halbrooks based on a story by Seton I. Miller and S.S. Field and produced by Jim Whitaker, p.g.a. (“The Finest Hours,” “Friday Night Lights”), with Barrie M. Osborne (“The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring,” “The Great Gatsby”) serving as executive producer.

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. Disney’s “Pete’s Dragon” opens in U.S. theaters on August 12, 2016.
