It had been quite some time since I’d seen Pete’s Dragon, other than Elliott lighting up the end of the Main Street Electrical Parade here at the Magic Kingdom. I was probably quite young and may have seen it when it was played on the original Disney Channel, but I really didn’t remember too much about it at all. For those like me, Pete’s Dragon is the endearing story between Pete and his invisible dragon friend Elliott as they develop a special bond and share a magical friendship. With memorable characters and heartwarming songs including the 1977 Academy Award® “Best Original Song” nominee, “Candle On The Water,” Pete’s Dragon 35th Anniversary Edition is the perfect timeless classic die-hard Disney fans will love.
Here are a few clips to remind of the fun in Pete’s Dragon:
