Pete’s Dragon is a 1977 American musical live-action animated film directed by Don Chaffey. It revolves around an orphaned boy raised by an abusive hillbilly family who is friends with a dragon named Elliot.
The above is the cover art for the film’s 35th anniversary edition for DVD & Blu-ray. The font used for the film title on the cover is Barricada. Barricada designed by Elí Castellanos Chávez is a heavy brush typeface featuring small counters, curved serifs, which give the letters a little playful look.
A remake of the film was released by Walt Disney Pictures in 2016. We currently can not find a matching font for the film title below, but here are two similar ones you can check out, Edwardian EF Extra Bold by Colin Brignall, and Matrix II Extra Bold from Emigre.
