4 great film, disappointing dvddogsoldierspoon | 11/05/2011 | See all dogsoldierspoon's reviews (1)Pete's Dragon is a fantastic Disney film, an underappreciated gem if you ask me. I personally prefer it to Mary Poppins. The film has great performances, great catchy songs and an entertaining story with a good balance between comedy and drama. However, the movie has been released thoughout the years in various forms on vhs. The release of this dvd isn't a good one though, it containts a few interesting extras BUT it features the cut version of the film! If you've seen the original film, you'll notice that some great songs have been cut (Happiest Home In These Hills, Candle On The Water, ...) or been shortened (I Saw A Dragon, Money By The Pounds). The only thing I can do is hope that Disney will release the full version of the film, but in the meanwhile this one can bring back some memories.
