Pete’s Dragon is all about a magical adventure that takes place involving a boy and his dragon
I was unsure what to think when I heard they were making a reboot of Pete’s Dragon. When I saw it in theaters finally it was better than I expected. Now it is coming out to DVD and I was able to get a review copy. Here is what I thought of this DVD.
You can read the plot for Pete’s Dragon here:
Mr. Meacham (Robert Redford), a woodcarver, delights local children with stories of a mysterious dragon that lives deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. His daughter Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard) believes these are just tall tales, until she meets Pete (Oakes Fegley), a 10-year-old orphan who says he lives in the woods with a giant, friendly dragon. With help from a young girl named Natalie (Oona Laurence), Grace sets out to investigate if this fantastic claim can be true.
I actually liked Pete’s Dragon more watching it for the second time. I appreciated the special effects more and the soundtrack was great. Even though the story is sometimes predictable the way that Elliott looks is astounding. If you want to learn more about Pete’s Dragon check this website out.
“Notes to Self: A Director’s Diary: gives an amazing look into the making of this film from beginning right to the last days of shooting and does a great job showing all the work put into making this version of the story. “Making Magic” shows viewers how the cast and crew brought Elliott the dragon to life. When I first clicked on it I had no clue what “Disappearing” Moments actually was. It turned out to be a bunch of extended and some deleted scenes from the movie which were a joy to see. There is also an audio commentary and two music videos.
