No, you didn’t read that wrong, although it’s not strictly true either! To promote the home release of its new version of Pete’s Dragon, Walt Disney Home Entertainment has been sending out a very special package to select review websites: a clamshell VHS edition of the movie!

Here are images of Animated Views’ copy of the case, including one lined up with some genuine Disney classic clamshells! Look for our full review of the more readily available Blu-ray edition – available to own now – coming in the next few days…
