PETE’S DRAGON poster shows its tale with a tail!
Disney is promising some major live-action enchantment in its latest big screen remake for Pete’s Dragon, which follows the story of a young boy who befriended a befuddled, secret dragon hidden deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. It’s a tale of friendship, family, and finding out where you belong that first reached fans in animated form back in 1977.
Today, the film gets a charming new poster featuring Pete being safely tucked away by his bestie.
A new trailer for the film is due out later today via Entertainment Tonight, so be on the lookout!
Pete’s Dragon flies into theaters on August 12, 2016.
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.
