First Poster: Disney’s “Pete’s Dragon”

A classic of childhood for many kids born around a specific time, Disney’s 1977 family film “Pete’s Dragon” has scored a re-imagining which opens later this year. Today though, the studio has released the first poster for the film – both a straight image and in motion poster form.

There’s also the first trailer on the way which will screen during the “Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60” special to air this Sunday night on ABC. David Lowery (“Ain’t Them Bodies Saints”) helms the new film about an orphan (Oakes Fegley) and his dragon friend only he can see. Robert Redford, Bryce Dallas Howard, Karl Urban, and Wes Bentley also star in the movie which opens August 12th.
