Pete’s Dragon reawakened my child-like wonder of the world. It is the story of a magical friendship that’s so wondrous it can only live for a short time. And though I knew exactly what I was in for, every step of the way, it softened my adult facade. When the inevitable time came, I teared up.
Pete’s Dragon is sweet movie, the epitome of a Disney family film, and the perfect example of a remake that gets it right.
