Over the past decade, we have seen some stunning CGI-assisted re-imagining of fairy tales and vintage kids films. They usually have great special effects, dazzling and recreating a form of wonder as classic stories are adapted for the modern day big screen. Some may have an adult, contemporary twist, like Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters or I, Frankenstein, but others simply bring the grainy picture and words on a page towards a high definition on-screen reality. Pete‘s Dragon is the latest classic to be reimagined, as the 70’s kids favourite receives this so called ‘modern twist’. With the trailer painting a positive message that the film is suitable for children (unlike Deadpool), we see a brief teaser of what’s to come. The story involves “the adventure of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliott, who just so happens to be a dragon”(IMDB). If you know anything about the orphan and the purple-haired-and-purple-winged green dragon, you should be just as excited as we are. Check out the HD teaser above, and keep a look out for a full clip.
