Pete's Dragon was one of the very first live action Disney movies released on VHS, first for rental only on March 4, 1980, then also for sale in October 1980. This VHS was also one of the few Neon Mickey titles to carry closed captions for the first time ever when re-released in 1985.


A heartwarming musical with something for everyone... tender love songs, rousing dances, thrilling plot twists, and an impossible, animated cration named Elliot, the Dragon -- who croons like Bing Crosby, becomes invisible at will, and flies through the air with the greatest of ease.
