Pete's Dragon

Synopsis: Pete, a boy is found in a forest. Apparently he's been living there for six years after an accident took his parents. A ranger named Grace decides to take him in and when she asks him how he survived all by himself, he says he had a friend, Elliot, with him. He draws a picture of Elliot and it's a picture of a dragon. Grace takes the picture to her father who claims that years ago, he encountered a dragon in the forest. Grace takes Pete back to the forest and he shows them where he lives and Elliot. A man saw Elliot and when he tells about his experience and is not believed, he sets out to prove it by capturing the dragon.

(SOLEMN MUSIC)

This is a story of a little puppy.

- His name is L-A...

- Elliot.

Elliot!

- His name is Elliot.

- You got it!

He is going on an adventure...

- An adventure?

- What's that?

An adventure?

You don't know what an adventure is?

What we're on right now.

Out here in the wild.

Not another souls in sight

for hundred of miles.

- Just the stars to guide us.

- Isn't that scary?

Well, that's the other thing

about adventures.

You gotta be brave.

- Are you brave?

- Of course you are.

I think you are the bravest boy

I've ever met.

Go north, go north,

with wings on your feet.

Go north with the wind,

where the three rivers meet

There's a clearing of sorts

in the circle of trees

Where the wild constellation

shine one, two and three

Look all around you and see

Deep in the forest there dragons will be

MAN:
As long as people have been

going into these woods...

...there been stories about

the Millhaven Dragon.

How's that song go again?

They come from the north, right?

Way up there in the mountains

where few people have ever been.

But sometimes a dragon

gets lost from it's family.

And winds up very, very far from home.

They say it lives in this very woods.

That you can hear it's roar at night.

They say this, they say that, but...

As far as I know, not one soul

has ever actually seen this dragon.

- Except me.

- (CHILDREN GASPS)

- You saw a dragon?

- I sure did.

Whoo. I sure did.

- What it look like?

- Well, it was green.

Green all over.

Except for it's eyes.

His eyes were red, like hellfire.

Before I could even blink,

it rears back it's head,

open it's mighty jaw and shoot out...

- (FIRE ROARING)

- (CHILDREN GASPING)

(CHILDREN CHUCKLING)

So I wasn't gonna waste my breath.

I rolled out of the way,

scrambled up my feet,

ready for the fight that was gonna come.

But, as I raised my rifle, the dragon

comes to me with one swipe of it's claw

knocks the gun right out of my hands.

Now... now what?

Things are really not looking good here.

But, I wasn't gonna be done.

Not yet.

I just took out my pocket knife.

And as the dragon set upon me...

- (KNIFE RINGING)

- (CHILDREN GASPING)

- I drove it home.

- Wow.

WOMAN:
Scaring the kids again, dad?

No, no. I was just giving them a leg up on

what's out there in those woods.

Wow. I'm out in those woods every day.

And while I have seen bears and bobcats,

and just about every type of birds

you can imagine...

...I have never seen a dragon.

Just 'cause you don't see something,

doesn't mean it's not there.

And just because you say it's true,

doesn't mean it is.

CHILDREN:
Ooh.

But, I'm headed out there right now.

I'll let you all know if I see anything

big and green and breathing fire.

- Mr. Meacham, I believe you.

- Well, I'm glad you do.

See, my daughter,

she knows a thing or two,

but only if it's staring at her in the face.

If you go through life only seeing

what's right in front of you,

you're gonna miss out on a whole lot.

That's why you guys have the upper hand.

Because mark my word,

that dragon is still out there.
