    Actor Robert Redford, who will be seen in the soon-to-be-released Disney's adventure fantasy Pete's Dragon, says that he has always believed in mythology and its creatures. The actor says dragon is a great symbolic creature from mythology and it is a big deal for him.

    "The dragon is a symbolic creature from mythology and mythology was a big deal for me as a kid growing up, so I'm a big believer in its importance," Redford said. He was last seen in the movie Captain America:The Winter Soldier.

    The actor is pretty excited about his new movie, which is slated to release on August 19, in India. He said, having brought up in a working class environment, he had nothing much to do except playing around in his own imaginary world.

    "So you had to kind of create your own. And it was about a greater world and greater characters and greater creatures than I knew, so, therefore, it was very, very attractive to me," he added.

    About his character in the film, Redford said: "He's the only person to have claimed that he's seen the dragon... Nobody believes him, but they like him and he's a part of the community."

    "He's isolated, not because he's an outlaw, but because he believes in magic, and I thought that was a wonderful character to have in a film." He ended.
