What's it About?A street kid gets out of all sorts of scrapes as he is befriended by a dragon. With Weta on special effects duties and Disney still at the helm, expect a heart-warming remake that may not necessarily be warranted, but will certainly bring the famous dragon to the attention of a new generation with the assistance of Weta's spectacular special effects.

Dragon Zoo Recommends: With a very strong cast, Howard Shore on score duties and a great special effects house in Weta that know all about realising spectacular dragons on the big screen, (think Smaug from The Hobbit trilogy) you know that this film has the potential to be very entertaining. 2016's sleeper hit? We wouldn't be surprised.
