Pete's Dragon (2016 film)

The adventures of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliot, who just so happens to be a dragon.
For years, old wood-carver Mr. Meacham (Robert Redford) has delighted local children with his tales of a fierce dragon that resides deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. To his daughter, Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard), who works as a forest ranger, those stories are little more than tall tales until she meets Pete (Oakes Fegley), a 10-year-old with no family and no home who claims to live in the woods with a giant green dragon named Elliott. From Pete's descriptions, Elliott seems remarkably similar to the dragon from her father's stories. With the help of Natalie (Oona Laurence), an 11-year-old girl whose father Jack (Wes Bentley) owns the local lumber mill, Grace sets out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about this dragon. However, Jack's brother and Natalie's uncle Gavin (Karl Urban) is interested with capturing the dragon.
