It has arrived, the first teaser trailer for Disney’s “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 as Grace, a park ranger who discovers the existence of Elliott; 10-year-old Oakes Fegley as Pete; Wes Bentley as Jack, a local mill owner; New Zealand native Karl Urban as Jack’s brother, Gavin; Oona Laurence as Natalie, the young girl who befriends Pete; and Oscar-winner Robert Redford as Grace’s father.
“Pete’s Dragon” is scheduled to fly into theaters on August 12. Watch the teaser trailer, below.
