As many of you know, I’m not in love with the 1977 Disney film, Pete’s Dragon. It’s not horrible, but it really doesn’t work as a musical and doesn’t hold itself together very well plot-wise. So when I heard that Disney was remaking the film and making it a non-musical, I thought to myself that this has potential.

The film is set to be released next year, so while we await it, it seems proper to review the original film first.

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!
