Podcast: Pete’s Dragon, Top 3 “Friendly” Movie Beasts – Episode 182

Podcast: Pete’s Dragon, Top 3 “Friendly” Movie Beasts – Episode 182

This podcast is brought to you PayPal and our awesome listener’s like you!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Disney’s latest live-action remake in Pete’s Dragon, the film that will go down as the year’s best remake. Going off of that we discuss our favorite “friendly” beasts in film and we finish off the show by discussing a few movie trailers that have come out over the last couple of weeks.

For this episode, we are finally joined by the great Jakob from JumpCut UK. We have tried to link up a few times with Jakob but for whatever reason, it never worked out. So, it’s great to finally get him on the show. JumpCut UK not only produces great film reviews but they also have created their own short film that is really wonderful. You’ll definitely want to give Jakob a follow.

On that note, check out the show and let us know what you think in the comment section. Thanks for listening and thanks for supporting the InSession Film Podcast!

Top 3 “Friendly” Movie Beasts (50:09)
This week’s Top 3 is obviously inspired by Elliot in Pete’s Dragon, the friendly dragon who befriends Pete when he needed someone the most. We wanted to focus on the beasts/creatures in film that have the affable qualities you want in a hero, and boy, did we find some good ones. In fact, some of these characters have gone on to become some of our favorite characters in film, period. On that note, what would be your top 3?
