When I was a little girl one of my favorite Disney movies was the classic Disney cartoon Pete’s Dragon. There was just something about having a dragon as a friend that I found so cool. I watched that movie countess times, I just loved it. When I heard Pete’s Dragon was coming back to the big screen, but this time in a live action version I got so excited (yes I am just a big kid at heart) I could enjoy the joy of this film in the theater with my daughter. While we wait for this to hit the big screen there are plenty of Pete’s Dragon books from Disney Publishing that will keep any fan entertained.
