Since I’ve finished reviewing Escape to Witch Mountain and Return from Witch Mountain, it’s time to talk about that third film in the series: the remake/reboot, Race to Witch Mountain.

So, let’s sit back and take a look at this film and see if Pete’s Dragon is any good and worthy to be remade or if it’s not good at all, hence worthy of being remade.

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!
