Disney‘s Pete’s Dragon Getting Remake
Disney is at it again as it has been announced that Pete’s Dragon will be getting a reboot with director David Lowery at the healm!
CelebNMusic247.com has learned that the Ain’t Them Bodies Saints director was hired last year as a co-writer on the film, but this time Pete’s Dragon is NOT going to be a musical.
It is unclear whether Lowery will tackle the project before or after his adaptation of Kevin Powers novel The Yellow Birds.
The director previously worked with a young cast on 2009’s St Nick, which centred around a group of runaway children surviving in the wild.
