MOVIE REVIEW: 2016 PETE'S DRAGON


No! Not that one...


Yes This one, That is better.
Yesterday I finally decided to go see this new version of  Pete's Dragon, I have been putting it off after the 1st experience of the 1977 version.
I was hoping it wasn't a musical.
I was Not a fan of that movie.
This new version is not a sequel, Much better. The animation was unbelievable as Elliot looked like a real animal, he blended in great with the live actors.
we had bumped into old friends in theaters before we saw it. They said it is a tear jerker.
Yes Michelle and Brandon were correct. In Disney style, they get you coming and going. So if you go to see this movie, be sure to bring napkins to wipe your eyes.
This movie keeps you interested in it (No Singing) lol.
There was a family next to us, who had 3 children and I could see them smiling. They weren't trying to run around or no crying.
Robert Redford and the other cast did a really good job.
I wont give away the plot, The only thing I will say is that Pete is an Orphan, and this kind loving green furry dragon takes him in.
Pete is discovered and brought to a hospital to check him out, He escapes and the woman who finds him, takes him in.
This is pretty much the only thing I can see that is like the 1977 Version.
Pete wants to return to the forrest where Elliot lives.
There is one thing I don't understand, What happened to Elliot's Fang Tooth, as you can see it is badly chipped off and there is a scar on his muzzle on the same side of his face.
Maybe they will make a prequel.
All in all this is a Great new take on Pete's Dragon. I cannot wait until it comes out on DVD so I can add it to my collection.
Oh One more thing. Disneyland will be getting the Main Street Electrical parade back soon. I wonder if they will upgrade Elliot and Pete.
Now I am glad my wife got me to go see this movie. I give it a 6 on a scale of 1-6 Dragons.....
Go see it!
