Pete’s Dragon tells a story of a local wood carver, (brilliantly played by Robert Redford), who has long been telling stories of a dragon who lives deep in the woods. His daughter, (Bryce Dallas Howard), is a forest ranger who stumbles across a young orphaned boy, Pete (Oakes Fegley) who has been living in the forest for the past six years and claims to live in the woods with a giant dragon.
Here is my daughters’s and my reaction to the film.
As a parent you want to expose your children to movies that have life lessons they can take with them. Pete’s Dragon is a beautiful story of the bond between a young child and his dragon and the magic that is found in friendship and family. I am in love with this magical creature and the cast does a brilliant job of drawing you into their world and showing you that anything is possible as long as you see beyond what is there. Pete’s Dragon is a MUST see for all.

Pete’s Dragon is AMAZING. I laughed, cheered and cried. Elliott and Pete made me believe in magic and that anything is possible if you have love. Everyone needs to see this movie.
