Pete's Dragon 2016 movie quotes tell the story of a young boy who is found to be living in the woods with a dragon. The fantasy adventure film is a remake of the 1977 film of the same name by Malcolm Marmorstein. Directed by David Lowery using a screenplay he co-wrote with Toby Halbrooks, Pete's Dragon opened in theaters on August 12, 2016.
In Pete's Dragon, forest ranger Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard) comes upon a dirty young boy, Pete (Oakes Fegley). Grace tries to ask the boy about his family, thinking he's recently lost, but learns that Pete has been living in the forest for the last six years. This intrigues Grace, who wants to learn more about how Pete survived in the woods for so long.
So with her father, Meacham (Robert Redford), Jack (Wes Bentley) and Jack's daughter Natalie (Oona Laurence), Grace begins to unlock Pete's secrets. According to Pete, he lived with Elliott the Dragon (voiced by John Kassir). But when word spreads that there's a dragon living in the woods, locals, including Jack's brother Gavin (Karl Urban), try to hunt Elliott down. This creates a very difficult situation for all involved.
He Says He Wasn't Alone
Grace: Guess you heard about the boy.
Meacham: Word travels in this town. How long has he been out there?
Grace: Six years
Meacham: You don't survive out in that forest for six years alone.
Grace: He says he wasn't alone.
Grace explains to her father, Meacham, about the boy she found. Meacham is familiar with those woods and knows a boy that age could never survive that long all alone.
That's a Dragon
Pete: You'll see. I have Elliott.
Grace: Who's Elliott?
Pete: I need to get back to him. He gets scared when I'm gone.
Grace: Is Elliott a person?
Natalie: He looks like a dragon.
Pete: What's a dragon?
Natalie: That's a dragon!
Pete talks about Elliott, someone or something that the others become curious about. The more Pete explains this friend, the more the others think that he's talking about a dragon.
What's Going to Happen to Elliott?
Natalie: What's going to happen to Elliott?
Gavin: You have no idea what things thing is capable of.
Natalie worries about what Gavin and others plan to do if or when they find Elliott. Gavin, on the other hand, sees capturing Elliott the only way to remain safe from the giant, fire-breathing dragon.
You Can Stay With Us
Grace: You don't have to run anymore, Pete. You can stay with us.
Pete: I don't want to leave you but they'll come looking for you.
Grace opens her home to Pete and invites him to live with them instead of in the woods. That does seem like a great idea, but he worries for Elliott's safety.
