Animation and live-action combine to bring the magical friendship between a young orphan and his unusual best friend to life in Pete’s Dragon High Flying Edition, coming to DVD on August 18, 2009 from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment. A classic feel-good Disney tale for the entire family, Pete’s Dragon High Flying Edition is packed with adventure, comedy and soaring musical numbers that have charmed children and adults since its 1977 debut. Now available in this special edition DVD, Pete’s Dragon High Flying Edition comes with nearly an hour of brand-new bonus features, including a look at Disney’s live action/animation legacy, alternate versions of some of the film’s most beloved songs and much more.

Pete’s Dragon was nominated for two Academy Awards (Best Music, Original Song and Best Music, Original Song Score and Its Adaptation or Best Score). The film boasts an
extraordinary cast that includes Sean Marshall (“To Race the Wind”), Helen Reddy (Sgt.
Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band), Mickey Rooney (Night at the Museum), Jeff Conaway
(Grease), Shelley Winters (The Poseidon Adventure), Jim Dale (“Pushing Daisies”) and Red
Buttons (“ER”), with Charlie Callas as the voice of Elliot the Dragon.

film.
• Promotional Record (Audio Only) – Pop versions of “It’s Not Easy,” “Brazzle Dazzle

Pete’s Dragon is an uplifting musical adventure about a spunky young orphan that blends live
action and stellar Disney animation. With his only friend Elliot, a tubby, 12-foot tall dragon who
can make himself invisible, Pete (Sean Marshall) takes refuge from his abusive adoptive family
in the seaside town of Passamaquoddy, Maine. After Elliot’s invisible antics wreak havoc with
the residents and Pete gets the blame, Nora (Helen Reedy) is touched by the youngster’s
plight and takes him to live with her and her tippling father Lampie (Mickey Rooney) in the
Passamaquoddy Point lighthouse. Lampie’s tipsy tales of the boy and his dragon amuse the
disbelieving townsfolk, until the local quack, Dr. Terminus, discovers that Elliot is real and
hatches a scheme to capture the dragon. An exciting and inspiring story with unforgettable
music, including the Academy Award nominated “Candle on the Water,” “There’s Room for
Everyone” and “Brazzle Dazzle Day,” Pete’s Dragon High Flying Edition will be a perennial
