The fourth dragon in the Disney library took on a much larger role than his predecessors. Technically, this dragon comes from a live action film but the character himself is a piece of classic Disney animation. He is a main protagonist through the film which is even titled after his role. Today, Elliot the dragon remains one of Disney’s most recognizable dragons, but he was introduced to the world as simply Pete’s Dragon.
Pete’s Dragon, Elliot
Elliot first “appears” in a completely live-action sequence. As a dragon that can turn invisible, we first see him being prodded by the young orphan Pete who appeared to be floating through the air. As the boy was being chased by the Gogans, Pete’s horrid foster family, Elliot was carrying the boy to safety.
