18. Pete’s Dragon

Release Year: 2016

Directed by David Lowery

Starring: Bryce Dallas Howard, Robert Redford, Oakes Fegley, Oona Laurence, Wes Bentley, Karl Urban, Isiah Whitlock Jr. 

Pete’s Dragon is one of the latest Disney movies to come to Netflix. The movie stars Oakes Fegley as Pete who loses his parents in a tragic accident and lives in the forest. He’s not alone in the forest, however, as he’s befriended by a green, fuzzy dragon.

When the boy is rescued from the forest and tells a story about the big dragon being his friend and protecting him all those nights in the forest, many are skeptical of the boy’s claims. That is, until a trip to the forest where Pete shows them where the dragon stays and where it’s revealed it’s real. But the reality of the dragon makes some people afraid and a group of people attempts to capture the dragon.

This is a great movie for the kids, but also for the parents watching the movie with their young ones.
