PETE’S DRAGON soars home with notable selection of bonus features

Much like it’s 1970s predecessor, the PETE’S DRAGON was a little bit of a polarizing film. At its core, the story is about the struggles of faith and family. It’s quite the Disney film and it packs more emotional punch than it does on whimsical fantasy. It was a quintessential talking-point movie from the House of Mouse and it delivers on that note in spades. Now, the magic of Pete, his dragon friend Elliott, are...

REVIEW: PETE’S DRAGON is an imaginative flight to a simpler time

When was the last time you went wandering through a forest looking for an adventure? With PETE’S DRAGON, you get plenty of both. I admit, as a child who used to spend all day playing in the woods and grew up with the 1977 musical Pete’s Dragon, it was hard not to have expectations for a similarly lovable, yet campy film.
