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. If they can fix the musical aspect of the film, maybe they can fix the other aspects that don’t work as well?

But, when I saw the trailers for this film, I wasn’t too impressed. Nevertheless, I gave the film a shot and what did I think? Well, read on to find out: here’s my review of the 2016 Disney film, Pete’s Dragon.

Is it deserving of that title or is it a bit overrated? Let’s find out together as I honor the request of a reader, luminabalderson, and take a look at Tron!

(Due to being busy with finals, I wasn’t able to make this review as long or as funny as I wanted it to be. I apologize for that.)

You would think that Steven Spielberg would have directed a film for Walt Disney Pictures already, but it wasn’t until last year when that actually happened! The BFG is based on a Roald Dahl novel of the same name (which previously had an animated television film adaptation). So you’d assume that when you put Steven Spielberg and Roald Dahl together, you’d get a pretty good movie, right? Well, let’s find out!

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!
