Some secrets are too big to keep.

For years, old wood carver Mr. Meacham (Robert Redford) has delighted local children with his tales of the fierce dragon that resides deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. To his daughter, Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard), who works as a forest ranger, these stories are little more than tall tales...until she meets Pete (Oakes Fegley). Pete is a mysterious 10-year-old with no family and no home who claims to live in the woods with a giant, green dragon named Elliott. And from Pete's descriptions, Elliott seems remarkably similar to the dragon from Mr. Meacham's stories. With the help of Natalie (Oona Laurence), an 11-year-old girl whose father Jack (Wes Bentley) owns the local lumber mill, Grace sets out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about this dragon.

Grew up with the original and i got curious bacause I love to watch kids movies. I did not like the plot holes in the beginning of the movie. They made it hard for me to really to get into the story. Good CGI thou.

You can definitely tell this was filmed in nz! The kind of family movie that should have done better with wide audiences. I thought it was well paced and often emotional. But I didn't really like the direction it ended up taking.
