Creating a Movie Night Tradition


Beauty Brite Disclosure

Every Friday night we’ve developed a special ritual in our house: Family Movie Night. At the end of a long week, it’s a chance to come together, bond, and reconnect as a family unit. Each of us has really come to look forward to these special Friday nights!

Being five years old, my son doesn’t have control of much over his life; between listening to us and his teachers, he has a lot of authority figures to contend with. Family Movie Night is the one opportunity where he gets to be the boss! We let him decide where we’ll get carry-out from (he usually picks Kim’s Restaurant, our favorite place for Chinese food) and we put him in charge of what family-friendly movie we’re going to watch that night.

When our son saw Pete’s Dragon in theaters, he was completely mesmerized. This made my husband and I incredibly happy because we enjoyed the original movie when we were kids. I’m pretty sure when my son left the movie theater, he wanted a dragon of his very own!


Pete’s Dragon is sweet, soulful story about an orphaned little boy named Pete. With no family or home to call his own, he forms a deep friendship and loving bond with a magical dragon named Elliot. The old wood carver, Mr. Meacham, has told stories about a mythical dragon that lived in the woods for years, delighting the local children of the town. His daughter, Grace, works as a local forest ranger and after an encounter with Pete, such starts to wonder if perhaps the wonderful “stories” her father told may actually be true!


Now, Pete’s Dragon is available on Blu-Ray and DVD, and ready to be a part of your family movie night! This DVD is filled with never seen before footage, silly bloopers, commentary, and much more! It’s a classic story about love and friendship that will keep adults and children spellbound until the very end. This year, I’m putting together some “movie night” themed stocking stuffers that I know he’ll love: great Disney DVDS, popcorn, a fleece blanket, and several sweet treats. This will let him know I appreciate our movie nights together and give him some new DVD options! Pete’s Dragon on DVD is the perfect, heartwarming gift for someone you love.
