February 21, 1978, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences nominates the song “Candle on the Water” from the film Pete’s Dragon for an Oscar Award in the category Music, Original Song. How many of you remember Pete’s Dragon? This was the best song!
Have you seen Disney’s remake of Pete’s Dragon? Tt is a live action film with our lovable, dragon; Elliott, and a young orphan named Pete. It takes place in a small fishing town in Maine in the early 20th century. Elliot acts as Pete’s protector. Elliot can make himself invisible and is generally visible only to Pete, which occasionally lands him in trouble
Disney remade Pete’s Dragon and released it August 12, 2016. Here is Pete’s Dragon’s new original song by The Lumineers, “Nobody Knows” which is beautiful:
~~Love is deep as the road is long…And moves my feet to carry on…It beats my heart when you are gone…Love is deep as the road is long~~
Did you know Disney and Google built an Augmented Reality game for Pete’s Dragon? It’s called “Dragon Spotting”, dragonspotting.com, the game runs on an iOS or Android smartphone and mimicks Pokémon Go. You must find Elliot throughout various places in their homes or neighborhoods. But if you want to have some real fun, CaribbeanDays can bring you to Disney and you can see where Elliot is hiding there!
