Pete’s Dragon (2016)

The official website is here.

Pete’s Dragon is another Disney live action movie that told about the story of a boy name Pete (Oakes Fegley), whose parents both died in a car accident near a forest. He is then saved by a giant, green fur dragon (forget Toothless or Daenerys’ babies who have scales) whom he called Elliot. One day, Pete was encountered by a girl named Natalie (Oona Laurence), along with Natalie’s father Jack (Wes Bentley) and Jack’s girlfriend Grace (Bryce Dallas-Howard). Pete’s existence, and with Elliot too, make everybody realizes that stories been told by Grace’s father Meacham (Robert Redford) is true all the way.

8/10. Since Maleficent (2014), Cinderella (2015), The Jungle Book (2016) and the upcoming Beauty and the Beast (2017), I always have interest to see Disney animations turn into live action movies, and so far, there’s no live action movies that disappoint me, including this movie. The original movie is cute and beautiful, and this live action version offers us the same feeling as the animation. Not as thoughful and thrilling like The Jungle Book, but still it gives us nostalgic feelings of the original one. The scenery is beautiful, the plot is comforting enough to be watched with your whole family, and IMO Oakes Fegley did better acting than The Jungle Book’s Neel Sethi. Wes Bentley is cute with beard, and I always love Karl Urban, haha. Oh, plus Elliot the cute green dragon who behaves like a puppy. Go see this movie with your kids, fellas!
