Mother and Daughter Film Review: Pete’s Dragon

We attended the screening as a guest of Disney

Oakes Fegley is Pete and Oona Laurence is Natalie in Disney's PETE'S DRAGON, the story of a boy named Pete and his best friend Elliot, who just happens to be a dragon.

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.

Mom Opinion

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.

Daughter Opinion (8 yrs)

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.

Don’t miss seeing Pete’s Dragon in theaters today! Learn more about the film online, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
