Disney has just released a brand new trailer for their upcoming remake of their own beloved classic Pete's Dragon. As I'm sure you know by now, the new film is a live action adaptation of the source material with story elements and the look of the dragon varying quite different from the original. While the new trailer is probably the best one yet, I'm personally already sold on this 80s era "amblin" looking film.
What about you? Check out the new trailer below and sound off in the comments section with your thoughts.
Here's the official synopsis for Pete's Dragon below:
"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."
Pete's Dragon is set to hit theaters on August 12th.
