After directing one of the most talked-about films at Sundance Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, David Lowery has hired on with writing partner Toby Halbrooks to script Pete’s Dragon for Disney and producer Jim Whitaker. I’m told they will reinvent the core story of a venerable Disney family film. It will not be a musical and at this point Lowery is just engaged as writer.

Huuuuuuuhhhhhh. That's interesting. I wonder if WDAS would be involved. I doubt it, but I think it'd be cool if they did the animation.

Good thing Zemeckis's mo-cap studio closed down, otherwise you know this would have been one of their projects.

NO, JUST NO

There is no way that a remake could be anywhere better than the 1977 classic.

I read this earlier and had to chuckle. Just because they make it, does not mean myself or other fans will see it. There is a valuable lesson for all of us fans, just because a studio makes a sequel or a reboot does not mean we have to see it or even accept it. It's ok to avoid it.

I might give it a chance that said, but it has a mighty high hill to climb to convince me.

I'm doubtfull of it's succes.. to say the least. Why tinker with past glories... Soon we will see more & more remakes if this one rakes in enough cash. I'd prefer original takes on new material

I wouldn't exactly call Pete's Dragon a glory... :lol:

I seem to remember this being mentioned before, along with a proposed DTV sequel of the original. To be honest, I doubt this would get very far. I know a remake of Bedknobs and Broomsticks was also tossed about at one point, but nothing came of it.

Oh for goodness sakes, what Disney executive plonker thinks this is a good idea?
Wonder if it is something to do with 'How to Train Your Dragon' being a big success ? Disney would like a new franchise maybe ...

I think it's a great idea to remake PETE'S DRAGON. The original is horribly outdated and the pacing is uneven.

I agree it is a classic film, but I have high hopes it could be done better -- especially with today's technology.

Not surprised it is being remade. They re-introduced the character at the Parks. Now I know why.

I haven't seen Pete's Dragon and I'm not going to offer an opinion of it, but I thought the general consensus was that it's not that great.

But, then again, I don't understand why "remake" is considered such an ugly word. I'm still waiting for Disney to get around to filming that Black Hole remake they announced a while back. That film is in desperate need of one.

We actually really need a remake of Pete's Dragon.























Said no one ever.

It' not like Disney never remade any of their own films before... Oh wait! they did.

True, but they're making all of the originals now pretty much with Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty. It's so sad that they have to rely on Marvel and Star Wars movies now for new films, instead of imagination. :(
