Disney have been slowly going through their back catalogue over the past few years, remaking its greatest hits in live action with the help of 21st century technology.
Described as a re-imagining, the studio's new live action take on Pete's Dragon (1977) introduces us to wood carver Mr. Meacham (Robert Redford), who spins wild tales of a fierce dragon living in the depths of the Pacific Northwest's forests. His daughter Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard) indulges his passion for storytelling, until she meets Pete (Oakes Fegley), a mysterious 10-year-old who claims to have no family and has lived in the woods with a giant, green dragon named Elliott. Could Meacham's stories be closer to reality than perhaps Grace suspects?
With Wes Bentley (Interstellar), Oona Laurence and Karl Urban (Star Trek Into Darkness) also in the cast, Pete's Dragon is out in cinemas now.
