This dragon definitely does not lay eggs!
After dropping a mysterious trailer for the upcoming film Pete's Dragon, Disney has been surprisingly secretive about revealing the titular fire-breathing beast — until now!
On Friday, the studio FINALLY unveiled the new version of Pete's dragon, and he looks… really cuddly!
Entertainment Weekly shared the first look on Friday, which shows the traditionally reptilian creature looking extremely mammal-esque!

It kind of reminds us of a green Falkor the Luck Dragon from The Neverending Story, or maybe if Chester Cheetah became the Hulk. Srsly, what is up with all that fur?!
While we're sure this will make younger audiences more sympathetic towards the mythical beast — which will sell a LOT more huggable dragon toys — we almost feel like they should change the title to Pete's Green Bear-Tiger Thing.
What do YOU think of Pete's furry friend? SOUND OFF in the comments — and go catch Pete's Dragon in theaters August 12!
