We LOVED Pete’s Dragon, the newest Disney live action film. It opens in theaters August 12th. And to start this weekend fun off right, I’ve got Pete’s Dragon Coloring Pages to share with you today. Plan to see this new Disney movie this weekend and make sure to view the 3D version, it’s fantastic! It’s a perfect family film, the story is wonderful and there’s enough action and entertainment to keep everyone involved.
I wasn’t sure what to expect with this movie. I love the animated version when I was a kid but hadn’t seen it in years. I’ve seen Elliot, the dragon, in the Electrical parade at both Disneyland and Disney World. He’s one of the classics. And again, Disney has produced a top notch renewal of a well loved story!
We LOVE Pete’s Dragon – it’s a great Disney film.
I think Pete’s Dragon is appropriate for all ages. The beginning might make you a little bit teary eyed, but only for a moment, as all Disney movies seem to start with a back story that has heart string pulling ideas. There might be a few startling moments for some kids, but I think The Jungle Book was more dramatic. The human characters are sweet and friendly and even the “bad guy” isn’t so bad in the end. If you liked The BFG, I think you’ll love Pete’s Dragon. The art is beautiful, and the story is lovely. No spoilers here, but I wouldn’t be surprised if more Dragons are on the big screen in the future.

More about Disney’s Pete’s Dragon
A reimagining of Disney’s cherished family film, “Pete’s Dragon” is the adventure of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliot, who just so happens to be a dragon. “Pete’s Dragon” stars Bryce Dallas Howard (“Jurassic World”), Oakes Fegley (“This is Where I Leave You”), Wes Bentley (“The Hunger Games”), Karl Urban (“Star Trek”), Oona Laurence (“Southpaw”), Isiah Whitlock, Jr. (“Cedar Rapids”) and Oscar® winner Robert Redford (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”). The film, which is directed by David Lowery (“Ain’t Them Bodies Saints”), is written by Lowery & Toby Halbrooks based on a screenplay by Malcolm Marmorstein and produced by Jim Whitaker (“The Finest Hours,” “Friday Night Lights”), with Barrie M. Osborne (“The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring,” “The Great Gatsby”) serving as executive producer.
For years, old wood carver Mr. Meacham (Robert Redford) has delighted local children with his tales of the fierce dragon that resides deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. To his daughter, Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard), who works as a forest ranger, these stories are little more than tall tales…until she meets Pete (Oakes Fegley). Pete is a mysterious 10-year-old with no family and no home who claims to live in the woods with a giant, green dragon named Elliot. And from Pete’s descriptions, Elliot seems remarkably similar to the dragon from Mr. Meacham’s stories. With the help of Natalie (Oona Laurence), an 11-year-old girl whose father Jack (Wes Bentley) owns the local lumber mill, Grace sets out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about this dragon. Disney’s “Pete’s Dragon” opens in U.S. theaters on August 12, 2016.
