You may already be a huge fan of Roald Dahl’s The BFG (stands for Big Friendly Giant) and have a picture of what the giants look like in your head. But, of course, director Steven Spielberg has his own ideas, too.
We’ve had a quick glimpse of a giant’s hand in the teaser trailer for Disney’s 2016 film adaptation, but we now get to see the giants (some friendly and some not so much) in full-force, with a visit to Giant Country in the below clip:
Dahl’s story of The BFG first appeared in 1975’s Danny, the Champion of the World, and a stand-alone book was published in 1982.
The BFG, voiced by Mark Rylance, is the odd man out in Giant Country because he refuses to eat children like most giants do. He’d rather blow bottled dreams into their bedrooms. Sophie (Ruby Barnhill), a child living in an orphanage, discovers the BFG on one such night as he peeks into sleeping children’s rooms.
This isn’t the first movie version of The BFG, with a 1989 animated film based on the book.
Disney’s The BFG will hit U.S. theaters on July 1, 2016.
Did the giants in the clip live up to your expectations?Read More
