A mysterious orphan, a mythological figure and a – park ranger? That’s right! Disney’s awesomely imaginative retake on the tale of Pete’s Dragon has all that any much, much more.

Robert Redford plays Mr. Meacham (an old wood carver), who’s been telling the tale of a fierce dragon that lives in the areas woods. For years he’s been spilling the details of the dragon’s doings for the local children. Meacham’s own daughter, played by Bryce Dallas Howard, has grown up listening to her father’s stories. And, that’s exactly how she thinks of them – as stories. That is, until she meets a 10-year-old orphan named Pete.

In a time when it seems like every 10-year-old is tethered to a tablet or mum’s iPhone, Pete is seriously out of touch. Not only isn’t he ferried from place to place in his parents minivan (obviously, as he’s an orphan), but he claims to live in the woods. In the woods? Yep, in the woods. That’s alone, without adult supervision, without the benefits of the Internet and without video games (can your child even imagine?). But, Pete does have one advantage over other kids.

What’s that? Pete has Elliott. And, Elliott just so happens to be a dragon! Yes, we all know that Disney’s movie magic means that there are often amazingly outrageous characters that come to life on the big screen. But, in the context of the movie itself, the characters just can’t imagine that Pete would be telling the truth. Sure, Mr. Meacham has been talking up this so-called dragon for what seems like ever. Indeed, he’d like the local kids to think it’s real. But, when Meacham’s daughter Grace finds Pete (and his wild claims), she’s got to figure out what the real story is.

Enter 11-year-old Natalie (played by Oona Laurence) and here dad Jack (Wes Bentley), to help Grace figure out whether Pete really has a dragon friend or not.

Fun for the whole family (yes, that includes mums and dads too), Pete’s Dragon comes to Australian cinemas on September 15.

    I love the way Disney brings happiness and joy via the tv to all of us. It is always refreshing and magical!

  14. Lynnette Bull Reply

    I love that Disney has stories/movies that please the whole family. Something that 4 generations of my family can happily sit down to watch together. All the new remakes have made them even more special as the older generation can remember how it was when they watched as children and get to experience it all updated and with their children/grandchildren

  15. It’s sheer feel good fuel for the imagination, for kids and grown ups alike.

  16. Disney is a world of amazing characters, far off places, interesting adventures and endless fun, with highs, lows, up’s, down’s, taking viewers on journeys they’d never get to experience or enjoy in real life. Escapism at it’s best, Disney is Disney, a lifetime of memories already made and yet to come.

  17. Ann Maree Sculley Reply

    Pete’s Dragon was a childhood favourite of mine ,the new film looks awesome and my family would love to see it 🙂 There is also a link on the Disney page for You to add your address and have Elliot fly over your neighborhood and the kids loved it .

  18. Pete’s Dragon was a favorite as a child and I would love to see the new one to share the enjoyment with my family.

    So lifelike Petes dragon will blow my little girls mind and with a wing flap the rest of her will go flying too!

  21. Samara Cassidy Reply

    With a little boy in the house anything with Dragons and dinosaurs is always a hit. It is also one of the few movies that all four (hubby, myself, 13yo and 4yo) of us would love to watch.

  22. Just like all of the Disney movies, Pete’s Dragon is magical & life like. Drawing the youngsters in, making them overly excited & unable to turn their little heads away from the screen. Would be fantastic to be able to take my 6 babies to watch it on the big screen.

  23. What is not to love about Disney, my little man has yet to be to the cinemas, and would love for this movie to be his first Cinema experience. A fantastic store to be remade !!

    Love Disney movies , They’re cute, they’re animated, they make you laugh, they make you cry and everyone aged 3 to 80 makes time to watch them over and over again. There is just something in the air that makes the little kid in all of us come out to play when the castle lights up at the end of the previews.

  59. Milly Howells Reply

    I personally like the sound of this movie because most dragon movies would star a little boy but this one has a girl and my daughter loves dragons!

  111. Calisto Brady Reply

    It takes you away from reality and closed-mindedness and stimulates a child to dream of what could be, whilst promoting the best of humanity’s emotions – hope and wonder.

  112. In a Disney movie – anything is possible with a little faith and magic. You can’t watch a Disney movie without feeling uplifted. You always walk away believing that everything is well with the world and that miracles can and do happen… What’s not to love?

  113. I have been enjoying Disney Movies since I was a child they are always entertaining and lots of fun to watch, I still love them today along with my children.

  186. I never got to see it when the original was released and I so wanted to go (it was back in the days when you NEVER went to the cinema because no one had money). So I’d love to see it as I never did!

  187. As a kid I always loved the song Puff the Magic Dragon, so when my boys got all excited about this movie, it took me back to my own childhood and I would just love to be able to take them to see the movie. Thanks for the opportunity! 🙂

  188. This would come perfectly at a time where my 5 year old is questioning the magic of Santa as a friend at daycare told him it’s your parents-over and over! Through the magic of Disney I’m sure we could keep the magic of childhood alive. 🙂

    Always great movies that become part of your childhood – three its great sharing them with your own kids!

  191. I love that Disney films are made not to be watched once, but again and again… with little details and hidden secrets each and every viewing, the enjoyment lasts a lifetime!

    I love Pete’s Dragon so much that I wish I had one of my own, he could fly me to and from my throne, and I’ll scream out above the clouds, I am The Mother of Dragons!!

    I love the story line and he feels loved and protected by it, a heartwarming family movie, my kids and I would love

    I love all Disney movies and I can’t wait to take my son to his first ever cinema experience and I think this movie would be brilliant for that, I’m sure it’d be his new favourite and he’d remember it forever. He’s almost 6 and loves dragons, he even had a toy one attached to his schoolbag.

    I loved the old version so much – it’s lovely to see they’ve remade it for my kids generation.

    Disney always go out of their way to engage viewers of all ages so I am looking forward to watching Pete’s Dragon with the kids and seeing what magic Disney have brought us!

    I think Disney sparks the imagination. Disney’s songs get stuck in your head and its a safe choice for my family.

    Disney has been in my life since forever, I’ve dreamt of a life with a nanny called Mary Poppins, a fish named nemo or a bed that can fly me wherever my heart wanted to go

    Disney was always my favorite as a child. And I still have my Pete’s Dragon book from when I was a child, now my children enjoy it like I did. Would be amazing to see the movie, as the family loves the book.

    I love the fantasy of Disney and how even if times get tough there is always a happy ending and you come out smiling – who doesn’t love the look or feel of a great smile!

    I love Disney movies and looking forward to watching Pete’s Dragon.

  205. i love a good dragon tale – especially when it has a special friendship with a child. So heart warming!

    I love the friendship between Pete and Elliot. My kids just love dragons and Disney movies. If they’re combined, bonus!

  207. I love that my teen daughter watches Disney movies if she’s had a rough week and then the world seems a better place!

  208. Disney is for young and old. My daughters can enjoy the movies that my Mum and I loved so much growing up and we can enjoy new and magical tales together.

    My boys are Dragon mad, and they’re Dragon me along with them. Please save me from more terrible puns by keeping them quiet for the duration of the movie. For Pete’s sake? See – there I go again!

  210. I would love to watch this movie with my kids and show them how dragons are mythical creatures that capture the imagination of so many different cultures, appearing in countless folklores and tales.

  211. Dragons are real – but now they are extinct. What folks in days gone by thought were dragons; were actually dinosaurs (bones, fossils, etc). What an amazing interpretation of what they found to try to explain one of the mysteries that life held for them. Such an amazing and fascinating insight into life from years ago; that has captivated our imagination to the present day.
