Everyone loves Disney, no one is ever old for Disney right? One of the most eagerly awaited family movies of the year “Pete’s Dragon” has been released. This family film takes you on an epic adventure of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliot who is a dragon.
The films star Oscar-winning Robert BedFord and Bryce Dallas Howard. The film has been shot in the beautiful country of New Zealand and when Bryce heard about that she was all on board with the movie. She expresses,
“I came to NZ for the first time when I was 6 years old, ever since then I have always wanted to come back. And it was almost as exciting coming to New Zealand as it was getting to do Pete’s Dragon. When I heard, “Do you want to do Pete’s Dragon?” It was like, “Yes, where is it shooting?” “New Zealand.” Oh my gosh! I have been thrilled getting to come back here.”
Robert BedFord adds,
“New Zealand is a country with a smile on its face. I came away with that phrase in my head. I would imagine that New Zealand today is the way America was when I was a little kid, where people bonded together, there was community work and there was joy and there was happiness, and it’s a can-do thing. New Zealand is a country that appreciates itself, I couldn’t help but smile..a wonderful experience for that reason.”
