Pete's Dragon is one of the summer movies that I have been looking forward to the most... and there's not long to go now until it finally hits the big screen.

Pete's Dragon

2016 has already been a great year for Disney - the studio has released a string of movies that have been both critical and commercial successes - and it looks like that is going to continue with Pete's Dragon.

The movie is a remake of the 1877 film of the same name, that kids of a certain generation will have grown up watching. This time around, the movie is a mix of live-action performances and great special effects.

The movie is released later this week and we have two terrific new clips for you to take a look at:

Pete's Dragon marks the return of David Lowery to the director's chair for what is his first feature film since Ain't Them Bodies Saints. This is the biggest film of his career and I cannot wait to see him put his stamp on this well-known and much-loved tale.

The director has brought together a fantastic cast as Bryce Dallas Howard, Robert Redford, Karl Urban Wes Bentley and Oona Laurence are all on board.

Oakes Fegley will also take on the central role of Pete and is a young acting talent to watch out for.

For years, old wood carver Mr. Meacham (Redford) has delighted local children with his tales of the fierce dragon that resides deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. To his daughter, Grace (Howard), who works as a forest ranger, these stories are little more than tall tales... until she meets Pete (Fegley).

Pete is a mysterious 10-year-old with no family and no home who claims to live in the woods with a giant, green dragon named Elliott. And from Pete's descriptions, Elliott seems remarkably similar to the dragon from Mr. Meacham's stories.

With the help of Natalie (Laurence), an 11-year-old girl whose father Jack (Bentley) owns the local lumber mill, Grace sets out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about this dragon.

Pete's Dragon is a family-friendly film that is set to light up the big screen this August. A must-see for all Disney fans.

Pete's Dragon is released 12th August.
