“Pete’s Dragon” Blu-ray Combo Pack Giveaway

By Shannon Gosney
In Blu-ray Review
October 26, 2012

Pete’s Dragon was a movie I used to love watching as a kid, except back then I watched it on VHS and it definitely did not have the quality it has today.  Now, I can watch Pete’s Dragon with my own boys and sing along to some of favorite classic Disney songs.  Available for the first time in high definition with new digital restoration on October 16, 2012 in a 2-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack is the Pete’s Dragon: 35th Anniversary Edition .


Rediscover with your family the endearing story between Pete and his invisible dragon friend Elliott as they develop a special bond and share a magical friendship.  With memorable characters and heartwarming songs including the 1977 Academy Award “Best Original Song” nominee, “Candle on the Water,” Pete’s Dragon 35th Anniversary is the perfect timeless classic every member of your family will love.


Mickey Rooney (The Fox and the Hound, Night at the Museum), Helen Reddy (singer/songwriter), Sean Marshall (The Small One, The New Adventures of Heidi), Red Buttons (The Poseidon Adventure, The Longest Day) and Jim Dale (TV’s “Pushing Daisies”).

I was really looking forward to receiving our copy of Pete’s Dragon in the Blu-ray Combo Pack and my boys were excited to see it today!  It is so much better on the Blu-ray and DVD than I remember as a kid!  The bonus features were pretty awesome too.  My favorite was the “Brazzle Dazzle Effects,” as well as the alternate version of the “Brazzle Dazzle Day” song.  I am so glad we get to add this Disney Classic to our family’s movie collection.  A big thanks goes out to Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment for this review and giveaway opportunity on The Mommy-Files.

    I watched this over and over again on cable. I guess it was when I was in high school and we’d just gotten cable. I don’t remember many of the songs, except for the one that describes Elliot (“He has the head of a camel, the neck of a crocodile, and the ears of a cow.”) and the one Helen Reddy sings, “Candle on the Water.” It’s a great movie!
