Pete’s Dragon was never your typical children’s musical movie. While it had its adorable moments it also dealt with the story of an abused little boy who just wanted to have a home and people to love him.
The new Pete’s Dragon is not a musical for starts, Pete looks more like Mowgli than a boy from the countryside, and even the story seems to have more influences from the Jungle Book than the original source material. In fact for a minute I thought I was watching the wrong trailer. It should be interesting to see how it turns out.
Pete’s Dragon is due in theaters August 12, 2016.
