A new film looking to find the sweet spot between modern classics like E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial and the Pixar formula has arrived. Want a first look at My Pet Dinosaur?

The film focuses on a boy who finds a dinosaur that's growing at an exponential rate in a small town where a military experiment has gone awry. As the dinosaur gets bigger and the military leaders look to track it down, we'll (probably) all learn some valuable lessons.

Along with E.T., the live-action film looks to evoke the vibe of everything from Pete's Dragon to The Iron Giant. It’s directed by Emmy winner Matt Drummond (Dinosaur Island), and the cast includes Jordan Dulieu, Annabel Wolfe, Christopher Gabardi and Tiriel Mora. 

Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
