The big-name cast includes Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World), Robert Redford (All Is Lost), Karl Urban (Star Trek: Into Darkness) and Wes Bentley (Interstellar), while the lad called Pete is Oakes Fegley, and no doubt like most child actors, we’ll never hear of him again after this.
The film is directed by David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints) who also co-wrote the script with Toby Halbrooks, based on the original story by SS Field and Seton I Miller.
Don’t wait up just yet, though, since Pete’s Dragon isn’t released in the UK until August 12th, which is five days ahead of the US. I won’t give a flying dragon about this one, though…
