Pete’s Dragon outtakes are the giggles you need today

There’s also another bodily expulsion involved, but no spoilers here

Posted on

Pete’s Dragon delighted family audiences this summer with a rare offering for an otherwise challenging year: a hand-crafted tale of child fantasy and imagination, tied up with an old-fashioned bow and delivered by director David Lowery and the folks at Disney.

The film stars newcomer Oakes Fegley as a 10-year-old orphan who found peace in the forest with a giant dragon named Elliot; Bryce Dallas Howard, Oona Laurence, Wes Bentley, and Robert Redford co-star as the city dwellers who stumble upon Pete and Elliot in the woods, to almost everyone’s disbelief (except, of course, wise old Redford).

The Disney flick arrives on digital HD, DVD/Blu-ray, Disney Movies Anywhere, and on-demand on Nov. 29, but EW has a sneak peek at one of the most heartwarming features accompanying an already heartwarming film: the outtakes!

In the Pete’s blooper reel, the kid actors rub off on the adults, and the result is a solid 60 seconds of giggles that induce even more giggles—truly, the best kind of giggles.
