We’re excited to share an exciting marketing opportunity with you. Disney’s classic family film Pete’s Dragon has been brought back to life using spectacular New Zealand locations as the backdrop.

The film was shot both New Zealand’s North and South islands, showcasing our many diverse landscapes. The story about an orphaned boy and his best friend Elliot the dragon is directed by David Lowery and stars Robert Redford, Bryce Dallas Howard, Oakes Fegley and Wes Bentley.
We think there is a great opportunity for you to showcase your vacation product to New Zealand and we’ve included some tools that can help you do just that. We know that some Disney’s Pete’s Dragon fans will want to transport themselves into the film by visiting the real locations used in the movie, but certainly we think the content we’re sharing with you can be used to promote all of new New Zealand.
