For years, old Mr. Meacham has delighted local children with tales of the fierce dragon that resides deep in the Pacific Northwest woods. To his daughter Grace, a forest ranger, the stories are little more than tall tales…until she meets Pete, a mysterious 10-year-old with no family or home, who claims to live in the woods with a giant green dragon named Elliot. With the help of 11-year-old Natalie, whose father owns the local lumber mill, Grace sets out to learn where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about this dragon.

    Eye just now saw Pete's Dragon twice. Eye watched this movie in Theaters on August 27, 2016, Then last night at home on May 17, 2021. And the other Pete's Dragon from 1977 was such a musical. And this one is not a musical because It must be live action. Great disney film.
  • Great remake and storyline

    The animation and facial expressions of the dragon were convincingly realistic and dramatically added to the scenes. Very moving film that the whole family enjoyed. The actors were not super convincing but since the movie is intended for children, I won't be hypercritical about the depth of characters. The dragon carried the movie. Definately worth watching.
  • Touching and much better than first

    I like this movie waaay better than the first. The original was cheesy and not that well made. This is a definite improvement, and has a great storyline and a good plot. I really like the overall feeling of the movie, and I cried in some parts. An emotional roller coaster.
  • Very emotional, magical and sometimes epic

    Pete's Dragon is a major upgrade from the original Pete's Dragon and i liked this movie a lot actually. In terms of casting choices was kinda weak but the rest of the movie is gorgeous and beautiful disney has done a great job so far.
  • Totally changed the story...but in an amazing way

    By ilistentomusic(obviously)
    Aside from the two main characters and basic premise, this remake totally changed everything about the original movie. Like Cinderella, this wasn’t a musical as contrary to its predecessor. But it was great, in different ways. I found the different approach to the story very fascinating. Although, I wouldn’t say it was as magical or thrilling as the first film. But otherwise, excellent movie.
  • Fantastic movie
