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 (Oakes Fegley). 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.

Pete's Dragon

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.S. theaters on August 12, 2016.

I absolutely love stories like Pete’s Dragon, where it is all about bringing your imagination to life. I mean, didn’t you ever dream of having your own dragon when you were a kid? Or maybe living in the woods in a big tree trunk…oh, was that just me?  Anywho…..

Here is a first look at PETE’S DRAGON, a re-imagining of Disney’s cherished family film starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Oakes Fegley and Robert Redford, which flies into theaters on August 12th
