Pete is one of the main characters in Disney’s live-action/animated musical film “Pete’s Dragon,” which was originally released in 1977 and was later remade in 2016. The character of Pete remains central to both versions of the film.

In the story, Pete is a young orphan boy who befriends a lovable and magical dragon named Elliott. The two of them share a deep bond and are inseparable. Pete’s life takes a turn for the better when he meets Elliott, who not only becomes his protector but also his best friend.

Pete, played by Sean Marshall in the original film, is portrayed as a resilient and resourceful child, having learned to survive on his own in the forest. Throughout the film, he forms connections with the townspeople, who are initially skeptical of his claims about Elliott. Pete’s character is endearing, and his relationship with the dragon serves as the heart of the story.

The 2016 remake of “Pete’s Dragon” further explores Pete’s backstory and the depth of his connection with Elliott. While the basic premise remains the same, the updated film provides a fresh perspective on these beloved characters.

“Pete’s Dragon” is a heartwarming tale of friendship, family, and the magic of believing in the extraordinary. Pete’s character plays a pivotal role in bringing these themes to life.
