The outdated special effects are forgivable, but 1977's "Pete's Dragon" can't make up for ear-grating musical numbers and a story that can't match the whimsy of its premise.

I actually really enjoy this often forgotten blend of Disney animation and live action. It captures an odd sense of magic and coming-of-age and features a brilliant and beautiful score.

Another older Disney film to combine live action with animation. Not as fun as the others that have done the same.

I get that this movie is really nostalgic for some people but seeing as I've only just now watched it, I feel like my opinion of it will be unbiased. So. This movie is pretty bad. The kid who plays Pete is probably one of the worst child actors of all time so he basically killed it for me from the beginning, The songs are boring and forgettable (with the exception of "Candle on the Water" which was the only part of this movie I actually enjoyed). Elliott was kind of cute but we hardly ever get to see him. And it's a half an hour too long. Disney is supposed to be coming out with a remake of it in August and while I'm not typically a fan of remakes, I think with Pete's Dragon it's probably a good idea. I really think this could actually be a decent movie if there was a little more effort …
