There is a new version of Pete’s Dragon that just came out on DVD and Blu-Ray (the original came out in 1977). It’s a heartwarming story and the dragon, Elliot, is very sweet when interacting with the main character, Pete. The very beginning of the movie is sad in that Pete loses both his parents in an accident when he is with them on a car trip. But as with most Disney movies, all turns out well in the end. The young actor who plays Pete, Oakes Fegley, is a truly amazing talent, and the movie also stars Bryce Dallas Howard (of Jurassic World) and Robert Redford. Our library also has the original version (which has quite a different feel to it) as well. Enjoy!
