“Pete’s Dragon” is the latest in Disney’s expanding line of live-action remakes of classic titles. For those of you who don’t remember the 1977 original, the film focuses on a young orphan boy named Pete and his best friend Elliott, who just happens to be a dragon (animated of course). Elliot, who may or may not be imaginary, protects young Pete and helps him get his life in-line.
Disney is about to release the trailer, but the just-released poster can be seen below.
The remake stars Robert Redford, Wes Bentley, Bryce Dallas Howard and Karl Urban. The film is slated to release in U.S. theaters August 12.
