At Nuffnang, we’re massive fans of all things Disney. We grew up watching the countless number of classic films, and learning to memorise the iconic storylines. As we grow older, we still heavily anticipate the release of every new film, which are always full of loveable characters.
With the school holidays just around the corner we’re excited to check out Disney’s Pete’s Dragon, in cinemas now in 3D.
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! Elliot has the ability to disappear, breathe fire and fly…so we’re sure children will be truly enchanted by him. The quality of the live action animation will have audiences of all ages believing in the reality of the mesmerising fantasy.
The creative execution of the film is a true winner in our eyes. The visual designers of Elliot have clearly studied and observed the fond relationships between people and animals. In fact, Pete and Elliot’s relationship closely resembles that of a boy and his dog. Perhaps this explains why we fell so in love with Elliot’s characteristics. By the end of the film you will become so invested in the storyline that you will leave the cinema, desperately wishing Elliot were real.
The film is a tale of mystery, friendship, family and love. We don’t want to give too much away, but if you’re partial to a slice of ‘Disney magic’ then this is the perfect film for you and your family.
A highlight of the film is the amazing cast, including Oscar® winner Robert Redford, and Bryce Dallas Howard of ‘Jurassic World’.
It’s the perfect movie to watch as a family as it provides the opportunity to open up to a world of imagination and delightful characters. While you’re busy rushing around this school holidays, switch off and tune into the fantasy of Pete’s Dragon.
