Disney's PETE'S DRAGON Remake Takes Flight in New Trailer and Poster
Disney has unveiled a new trailer and poster for the studio's Pete's Dragon remake, which stars Oakes Fegley, Bryce Dallas Howard, Wes Bentley, Robert Redford, and Karl Urban. While the atmospheric first trailer teased a mysterious tone for the film, this new trailer shows off a ton of new footage and gives us a much better idea of what to expect when the movie hits theaters in a couple of months.
Last week, Disney invited me to check out some early footage from the movie with Howard and director David Lowery in attendance, and during his presentation, Lowery showed us this trailer and spoke very highly of it:
"When you’re making a movie and watching it over and over and over again, you kind of forget that it’s a movie sometimes. You always know that’s what you’re making, but you’re so focused on the details and you’re just trying to get every little piece to fit right and you kind of lose sight of the big picture sometimes. When I saw this trailer that the folks at Disney put together, I was reminded, ‘Oh yeah — we made a movie! This is awesome!’ I’m so thrilled for this trailer to be out in the world, and the movie too, but this trailer is a perfect set-up for what people are going to get to experience later this summer."
Keep an eye out for my in-depth piece on the film in just a few minutes, and in the meantime, check out the new trailer below. Pete's Dragon hits theaters on August 12, 2016.
