There’s a remake of Pete’s Dragon ahead of us! Disney is indeed developing a new Pete’s Dragon movie. Director David Lowery is in charge of the project and the cast includes Oakes Fegley, Oona Laurence, Robert Redford, Bryce Dallas Howard, Wes Bentley, and Karl Urban. Here’s the remake’s logo:
“A young orphan seeks refuge from his abusive adoptive parents with the help of a pet dragon and a couple.”
Thanks to Screen Slam here’s a video of the presentation from the last D23 expo:
