-->'''Mayor:''' Gentlemen, I propose to say,...Passamaquoddy's a beautiful community...where the sun always rises and the sun always sets. It's a place of serenity and security, where the unexpected never happens. ''[Elliot kicks the eggman for kicking Pete, causing him to stumble towards the mayor]'' It seems to say, "Welcome!" ''[splattered with eggs]'' You-You absolute oaf. You-You idiot! ''[throws the egg baskets away]''

* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Unlike his original incarnation, the new Elliot's design is more based in the world of real mammals, including dogs and cats, with his scales swapped for green fur and his pink hair gone. Regardless, he can still fly and breathe fire.
* ShownTheirWork: The developers worked to capture Elliot's clumsiness by watching "hours upon hours" of funny animal videos.

!!Tropes for the 2016 reboot:
* InkSuitActor: Inverted example. Two sheriff characters seen in the trailer bear an uncanny resemblance to Sheriff Blubbs and Deputy Durland from ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls''. [[https://twitter.com/charlestan/status/745138466829176832 See for yourself]].

Continuing Disney's trend of rebooting much of their fantasy catalog, a remake of ''Pete's Dragon'' is set for release in summer of 2016. Now a CGI character, Elliott is a cryptozoological oddity of the Pacific Northwest being studied by Mr. Meacham (Creator/RobertRedford) and his park ranger daughter Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard). New evidence of the dragon's existence comes to light when a feral child named Pete (Oakes Fegley) emerges from the woods, having spent six years living with the beast.

* ObfuscatingDisability: Hoagy uses this to give Doctor Terminus and his tonics some ill-deserved credibility. First he inverts it by playing an old and obviously deaf woman, and fakes gaining the ability to hear. Then he plays it straight by masquerading as a old man who hobbles on crutches and doesn't need them anymore once he's had some of Terminus's tonic.
