The setting is Millhaven in America but in reality it is Tapanui in Otago in New Zealand’s grand South Island.
You will also spot Rotorua, Wellington and Queenstown in the movie.
The Shotover Canyon near Queenstown is where Elliot the Dragon flies through and over.
Pete’s Dragon opens in cinemas in September 2016.
