Walt Disney Pictures has debuted the first trailer for Pete’s Dragon, a reimagining of the studios’ 1977 classic.

The family film blends live action and CGI to tell the story of the special bond between an orphaned boy, Pete, and his best friend, Elliott, who just happens to be a dragon. It stars Bryce Dallas Howard (The Help) as Grace, a park ranger who discovers the existence of Elliott; 10-year-old Oakes Fegley (This is Where I Leave You) as Pete; Wes Bentley (The Hunger Games) as Jack, a local mill owner; New Zealand native Karl Urban (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Jack’s brother, Gavin; Oona Laurence as Natalie, the young girl who befriends Pete; and Oscar-winner Robert Redford (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, All the President’s Men) as Grace’s father.

Pete’s Dragon is directed by David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints) and produced by Jim Whitaker, with Barrie Osborne serving as executive producer. The screenplay is by Lowery and Toby Halbrooks. WETA Digital, the visual effects company founded by filmmaker Peter Jackson based in New Zealand, will utilize the latest in digital effects to bring the dragon, Elliott, to life.

The film is scheduled to be released in U.S. theaters on August 12.

Trailer looks too much like How to Train Your Dragon. Or was it HTTYD that copied this story? :dunno:
Will check it out regardless though.

Love the original and this looks so different to how I expected it.

I hope Elliot is not proper dragon looking, if you get what I mean. I kind of want a goofy face still!!

Hmmm

Cool poster
