Much like it’s 1970s predecessor, the PETE’S DRAGON was a little bit of a polarizing film. At its core, the story is about the struggles of faith and family. It’s quite the Disney film and it packs more emotional punch than it does on whimsical fantasy. It was a quintessential talking-point movie from the House of Mouse and it delivers on that note in spades.
Now, the magic of Pete, his dragon friend Elliott, are coming to the home market in all the expected formats and it brings with it a slew of goodies.
