at the 25. August comes „Elliot, the Dragon“ in our cinemas. It is the remake for family movie „Elliot, the Schmunzelmonster“ from the year 1977, to see in the real actors alongside an animated hand Zeichendtrick Dragons were. The film is still regarded as a classic, though not as large as one of the very similar films like Mary Poppins. the „Elliot, the Dragon“ will be more than a reinterpretation of an actual remake, alone makes the very fact clearly, that the film as opposed to the original is not in the early 20. plays century, but in the present. But not only the story is breaking new ground, but also the visualization of the new dragon, to which Walt Disney Pictures Images, one TRAILER And a Poster published.
Especially well remembered many expected the cute Schmunzelmonster Elliot have remained, that could become invisible and with his friend, the orphan Pete, has loved to eat baked apple for life. Elliot was then drawn by hand and exhibited throughout endearing characteristics, so that even the small children determined in the cinema audience no Fear had before him. That went so far, that the dragon diverse fuchsia elements like hair, wings etc. missed. There are now no more Pink for Schmunzelmonster. In the reinterpretation Elliot was contemporary animated in CGI and no longer by hand and many of its optical characteristics, who allowed him look so lovingly, were completely disregarded. Opposite the magazine Entertainment Weekly said director David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints), that the new dragon was inspired by all kinds of animals, among others, of Australian flying foxes.
Certain things about the original design we loved: Big jaw, big snout, and a clumsy quality that we really wanted to not completely forget about. We explored pink, just to see what would happen. From the get-go, the aesthetic was always to make everything feel as handmade as possible, including effects. To really have it feel like a blur Between a very grounded realistic world and a world in which a big green dragon that can turn invisible can exist.
What is new, for example,, that Elliot has a coat and will be larger than a lot of the cartoon dragon. Even if you let himself quite inspire from original (Lowery speaks from the central pine, the big nose and the clumsy way of Schmunzelmonsters), is ultimately but a completely new dragon emerged, the just smaller children initially have scare quite a shock - so at least the impression of the first trailer and the first images, which allow a first clear look at Elliot. Starring Oakes Fegley be, Bryce Dallas Howard, Oona Laurence, Robert Redford,Karl Urban and Wes Bentley can be seen.
