You wouldn’t be alone if you were skeptical when you heard the words “live-action remake of Pete’s Dragon.” But it seems director David Lowery may have pulled off the impossible—he may have made a live-action remake that actually improves on the animated original. This new trailer is just more glorious proof.

Pete’s Dragon opens August 12 and start Bryce Dallas Howard, Oakes Fegley, Wes Bentley, Karl Urban, Oona Laurence, and Robert Redford.


We’ll have much, much more on it tomorrow, including interviews with the director and star.

Animated original and live action remake? I think someone has confused those terms. Both films feature an animated dragon in a live set with live actors. They simply updated the technology used to animate the dragon.
