Filled with friendship and fun, and featuring the Academy Award(R)-nominated "Candle On The Water" (Best Original Song, 1977), this family classic on Disney Blu-ray turns every viewing into a Brazzle Dazzle Day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sorely Underated and Too Often Bashed November 17, 2003
Format:DVD
It is really sad to see how cruel people can be out there. I will admit to you that this may be a little heavy for a kid's movie, but it has some excellent points to make. I continue to see this movie derided by people and press and it makes me very sad how people don't give it a chance. I wes very impressed with the music, I have all of the soundtracks, LP, Cassette and CD, I own the movie on VHS and DVD and it has always been my favorite movie of all time. Perhaps it's my favorite because it is such a step away from normal, lightheated children's movies. I read somewhere that Walt Disney was probably rolling in his grave when this movie came out, and I would like to say I believe that person to be sorely mistaken. While a bit flawed, this is truly an excelent Disney film. Remember, "There's Room for EVERYONE in this World" as the song states, give this movie a chance. This is a wonderful film to watch with your children and discuss afterwards, maybe even watch on your own. It is NOT strictly for children. While Pete's Dragon is based, derided, and generally forgotten, I urge all of you to at least rent this gem and bring it out of the obscurity it doesn't deserve.

4.0 out of 5 stars Charming & Heartwarming Film; excellent extras! August 8, 2009
By Dave
Format:DVD
"Pete's Dragon" (1977) has become a somewhat forgotten Disney movie that was originally inspired by the success of Mary Poppins (45th Anniversary Special Edition) as a live-action/animation musical. The story finally got the green-light in 1975; songs were by Al Kasha and Joel Hirschhorn, and an all-star cast was assembled: singer Helen Reddy in her first film role, Broadway's Jim Dale, Shelley Winters, Red Buttons, Jim Backus, and Mickey Rooney. Sean Marshall, in his first acting job, portrayed the title character of Pete.

Pete is a young orphan who has escaped the abusive family that adopted him: a dirty bunch of hillbillies known as The Gogans (Jeff Conaway, Kenickie from Grease (Rockin' Rydell Edition) [Blu-ray] plays one of The Gogans). They adopted Pete to use him as a slave. Elliot, a large green dragon who can become invisible at will, helps Pete escape, and acts as his friend and protector. Pete ends up in the small village of Passamaquoddy, where he is taken in by kindly Nora (Reddy) and her father Lampie (Rooney). The two own the lighthouse in town, where Nora waits for her boyfriend Paul to return, even though he was lost at sea years before. The Gogans find Pete and attempt to steal him back, with the aid of Doc Terminus (Dale), a medicine showman, and his shill, Hoagy (Buttons). Although fairly predictable, it is a heartwarming story with an excellent cast and music that is light and breezy. Definitely good fare for the young!

Nominated for Best Original Score and Best Original Song ("Candle in the Water"), pleasantly sung by Reddy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it as a kid, love it more now!! April 8, 2005
Format:DVD
Pete's Dragon has always been one of my favorite movies. This is a wonderful classic movie you can watch with your children. The songs are fun, and lighthearted. I love the part when they sing about how they would use the dragon pieces. They do this silly little dance, which is really funny. I loved it as a child, and love it even more now. I think that Elliot is a dragon with a huge heart, and it is just fun to watch!

5.0 out of 5 stars just my opinion April 14, 2003
Format:DVD
I recall this movie from when I was a child and as I remember, I thought it was fantastic to have a dragon friend. I recently borrowed it from the local library and was just browsing through the site to find a copy to purchase. My 22 month old daughter and my 4 year old neice watched it at tv time after their baths the other night,and both were delighted with the movie. I think the problem with the negative reviews is that this movie is better suited to younger children with their imaginations still intact. Also, I don't adhere to the opinion that everything that they encounter as children has to be "educational", a child's imagination is a wonderful place. I think the movie is great. Just my opinion though.

May I agree to disagree with the editorial review and the Maltin review?
Okay then.
I have always found "Pete's Dragon" to be an engaging family film. Though it pales in comparison to Disney's last musical effort, "Bedknobs and Broomsticks," it scores points with an entertaining song score (anchored by the Oscar-nominated "Candle on the Water") and some delightful voice work by Charlie Callas as the voice of Elliott the Dragon. Mickey Rooney, Red Buttons, Jim Dale, Helen Reddy (in all fairness to negative reviews about her performance, the role of Nora is pretty lightweight to begin with) and Shelley Winters make an endearing ensemble. Of course, it is Elliott who is the film's greatest delight.
This DVD has excellent picture and sound quality. The colors are sharp and grain is minimal (save for the process shots that mix the animated dragon with the live-action scenes), and the sound is pretty clear. The supplements include a re-issue trailer from 1984, pieces with background information on the myth of dragons and other such creatures, and more. Disney has given this film the proper DVD treatment the first time around; all I'd do differently was attempt to restore the film to its original length of 135 minutes.
