The mystery of exactly who Pete's friend is is about to be revealed...

Because who didn't want to have an over-sized magical pet when they were younger?

It was 1977 when orphaned Pete and his best friend Elliott the dragon first hit our screens and since then it's been a cherished family film.

Now, under the wing of director David Lowery, the duo are back in this reboot, staring Oakes Fegley as Pete.

Pete's Dragon

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.

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. 

Disney’s 'Pete’s Dragon' opens in U.K. cinemas on 12th August 2016.
