Pete's Dragon Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Pete's Dragon has been granted new life courtesy of Disney's polished and proficient 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer. While the film slogs through bouts of softness, some more glaring than others, most eyesores trace back to cinematographer Frank Phillips' photography. Nothing more. Yes, the image has been subjected to some judicious filtering, but it doesn't take a remotely substantial toll. Fine textures are showcased again and again, closeups are striking, edges are surprisingly crisp and clean on the whole, and grain is both present and pleasant, even though it appears to have been normalized a bit by way of non-invasive restoration or remastering techniques. Color and contrast are lovely as well, with bright, bounding colors, vivid primaries, and deep black levels. Skintones run a touch pink, darker scenes tend to be murky and oppressive, and Elliott and other composited elements are grainier than the backgrounds onto which they've been placed, but again, most, if not all of these slight distractions are source-based. I didn't notice any troubling artifacting, banding, aliasing or other such oddities, and I came away from my time with the film wondering what, if anything, Disney could have done to significantly (emphasis on significantly) improve the presentation further.


Pete's Dragon Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Disney's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track isn't so much a commanding audio presentation as it is a commendable one. The rear speakers are used very sparingly, as is the full force of the LFE channel, and voices are sometimes thin, muffled or accompanied by a low-lying hiss. Even so, it's important to remember that Pete's Dragon is celebrating its 35th Anniversary. This is the film's original sound design given the opportunity to sink or swim, and it does both on different occasions. Thankfully, dialogue is typically clear, intelligible and capably prioritized, dynamics are decent, pans are scattered but smooth, and Al Kasha, Joel Hirschhorn and Irwin Kostal's songs and musical score sound quite good all things considered. Disney's lossless track isn't going to turn heads, but it does right by Pete, Elliott and the film's original sound design.
