It’s almost time!! Disney’s PETE’S DRAGON is opening in theaters this Friday, August 12th!! I really couldn’t be more excited. It seems like we’ve been anticipating this movie all summer long, and it’s finally almost here! I’m planning on a special day out with Lincoln to see it. He’s super excited!!
town of Millhaven 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 in these
very woods, his 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 to speak of, who claims to live in the woods
with a giant, green dragon named Elliot, and from his descriptions, Elliot seems remarkably similar
to the fabled dragon from Mr. Meacham’s stories.
beyond his forest, his presence causes Grace to take a look at her own life, including her
relationship with Jack (Wes Bentley), who owns the local lumber mill. Jack wants to support Grace’s
endeavors to study and protect the surrounding woods but needs to focus on keeping his company
profitable at the same time, and it is driving a wedge between them.
year-old daughter Natalie (Oona Laurence), sets out to uncover the truth about this dragon and
determine where Pete came from…and where he belongs.
screenplay by Lowery & Toby Halbrooks based on a screenplay by Malcolm Marmorstein and
produced by Jim Whitaker, p.g.a., with Barrie M. Osborne serving as executive producer.
