Countdown to Disney! ~ Day 7

Favorite Live-Action/Animated Film:  Pete’s Dragon

Pete’s Dragon was released in 1977.  This Disney film combined the magic of animation with live-action.  Where else can you find a young orphan with a 20 foot tall dragon as a best friend?  Oh, and I forgot to mention – he can also become invisible at a moment’s notice.  This is often an overlooked film, which is too bad; there are amazing songs and some great acting.  Helen Reddy does a fantastic job as Nora, especially when singing “Candle on the Water.” 

I am always delighted to see Elliot and Pete in the Main Street Electrical Parade.  It is definitely my favorite part!

This film is absolutely charming and a true classic!  If you have never seen this film before, then I encourage you to watch it.  As a matter of fact, I think I will watch Pete’s Dragon on this brazzle dazzle day!
