New Poster for Disney's Pete's Dragon
I was just a wee lad when 1977's Pete's Dragon was released by Walt Disney Pictures. It's quite easy to understand how a little kid could get caught up in the excitement and magic of having a dragon for their best friend. Thanks to Dreamworks it's still pretty cool to imagine having a dragon for a best friend.

It's been nearly four decades, and two generations removed, since the original flew into theatres and now Pete's Dragon is being reimagined. Disney has had a pretty solid track record of reimagining many of their beloved classics and I can't imagine this one being any different.
With the film, directed by David Lowery (Ain't Them Bodies Saints) and starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Robert Redford, Wes Bentley and Karl Urban, opening August 12, 2016, Disney has released the film's first teaser poster, as well as, a motion poster.
If you want to see more on Pete's Dragon be sure to catch the debut of the brand new teaser trailer during "Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60" on ABC Sunday night at 8:00PM EST.
