Synopsis

Pete and his parents are driving along one day – reading a story called Elliot Gets Lost – when suddenly the car crashes. Pete spends the next six years of his life in a North American forest – relying on his mother’s lingering words reminding him to be brave – with a newfound companion: a big green dragon that he names Elliot. Fiercely protective of each other, the two must evade capture from a mercenary hunter or risk being separated forever. This live-action remake of the 1977 children’s classic is an emotional and adventurous tale of loss, independence and the bonds of friendship.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
