Pete's Dragon (PG)

Adventure, Family, Fantasy

The adventures of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliot, who just so happens to be a dragon.

The critical consensus

For all its charm and anti-blockbuster mentality, there is no getting away from the fact that this Pete’s draggin’.

***(*)(*)Neil Smith, Total Film, 27/07/2016

Disney's remake of its Seventies kids classic proves to be one of the most charming and captivating films of the summer.

****(*)Kevin Harley, The List, 08/08/2016

At its best, Pete’s Dragon has some of the same grace and lyricism found in Caroll Ballard’s The Black Stallion.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 10/08/2016

It may be extremely slight and even too wholesome for modern tastes but Pete’s Dragon is still welcome family fare.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 12/08/2016

This remake of the 1977 Disney film offers a strong family entertainment.

****(*)Wendy Ide, The Observer, 14/08/2016

A cute but not cutesy boy-and-his-dog story, with the dog played by a very big green dragon. Strong performances and direction make the most of a lightweight tale.
