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 Elliott. And from Pete’s descriptions, Elliott 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.
Today on twitter Bryce further confirmed that the trailer will be released during the Disneyland 60th Anniversary special airing on SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 21 8e|7c on ABC. It has also already been announced that Bryce will be personally promoting Pete’s Dragon during that special.
Getting excited! The trailer premiere for Disney’s @disneypetes is only 2 days away! #Disneyland60 Sunday on ABC! 🐲
