“Cool Girl” by Tove Lo

Since the release of her first major international hit, “Habits (Stay High),” the world has been addicted to Swedish singer-songwriter Tove Lo’s infectious music. Notching two solo hits on the Billboard Hot 100 between 2013 and 2015, Lo went on to appear on a handful of tracks by other artists, including Nick Jonas’ “Close,” Alesso’s “We Can Be Heroes,” Coldplay’s “Fun,” and Years & Years’ “Desire”; She even wrote the lead single, “Sparks,” from Hilary Duff’s fifth studio album.

Pete's Dragon: EW review

Comments +

If your kids can get through the first five minutes of Pete’s Dragon (which rank right up there with the shooting of Bambi’s mother on the Disney trauma-o-meter), then you won’t find a sweeter family film for the waning days of summer.

For a creature that’s 20 feet tall, carpeted in green fur, and cloaked with leathery wings, the title character of Pete’s Dragon proves rather elusive in three new clips from the upcoming Disney movie.

Instead of showcasing Elliott, the dragon in question, the clips hint at his presence while focusing on the film’s human stars. Those include Bryce Dallas Howard as a kindly forest ranger, Robert Redford as her yarn-spinning father, and newcomer Oakes Fegley as an orphan who has struck up a special friendship in the forest.

Crazier still, that dragon may be a creature from their past.
