Roald Dahl is one of the greatest children’s book authors of all time, and the films made of his stories are usually very good to all-time classics. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was written by Dahl himself back in 1971, and before the bizarre Tim Burton big screen adaptation starring Johnny Depp, there was the beloved Gene Wilder version, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. Since then we’ve gotten excellent work in films like The Witches, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Matilda, and James and the Giant Peach. Take the finest child author and combine him with the greatest living director, Steven Spielberg, and you get a the potential for a classic in the making: Disney’s The BFG… Big Friendly Giant.

Movie Review: Steven Spielberg's THE BFG, starring Mark Rylance.

The BFG
Director: Steven Spielberg
Screenwriter: Melissa Mathison
Cast: Mark Rylance, Ruby Barnhill, Jemaine Clement, Penelope Wilton, Rebecca Hall, Rafe Spall, Bill Hader
Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures
Rated PG | 117 Minutes
Release Date: July 1, 2016

Roald Dahl created some of the most beloved children’s stories of the 20th century, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, The Witches, and Fantastic Mr. Fox. Like Walt Disney, Dahl had a knack for fusing the fantastic with the frightening, blending sweetness with sadness in a way that resonated with old and young alike.

Dahl’s The BFG was first published in 1982, the same year Steven Spielberg’s own seminal tale of friendship, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, captured the hearts and imaginations of audiences around the world. It’s funny how things work out. Three decades later, Spielberg and his E.T. collaborator, the late screenwriter Melissa Mathison, have adapted the Dahl’s timeless adventure for the big screen.

Disney's The BFG

As Disney’s newly released trailer for The BFG says, “Hold your breath, cross your fingers, and here we go,” because adventure awaits. Steven Spielberg‘s most recent directorial effort is an adaptation of the Ronald Dahl novel of the same name that centers on a young girl (newcomer Ruby Barnhill) who finds herself in the world of giants and befriends one of the smallest of the group (Academy Award-winner Mark Rylance).

The trailer for the film provides a little more story than the first. It also expands on the world of the giants and shows us the visually stunning creation that Spielberg will show us this summer. Check out the full trailer here below.

Disney's The BFG

Disney has released the official trailer for The BFG, director Steven Spielberg‘s adaptation of the 1982 Roald Dahl story of the same name, which is set to release later this year fairly close to the 100th anniversary of Dahl’s birth. A teaser trailer for the movie was released back in December of last year, and can viewed right here if you missed it.

The new trailer gives us a much better look at the movie and the BFG (Big Friendly Giant) himself (played by recent Oscar winner Mark Rylance), and perhaps even some BNSFG (Bigger Not So Friendly Giants).

Check out the trailer and a poster and read more about the movie below.

The BFG image 01

Steven Spielberg reunites with his Bridge of Spies star Mark Rylance for an adaptation of Roald Dahl‘s children’s classic, The BFG. Rylance didn’t get as much screen time as his fellow Spies co-star Tom Hanks, but he stole plenty of scenes with his strong performance. And now we will be able to see what he can do when he shares the screen with newcomer Ruby Barnhill for a much bigger role as the titular character.

In the film, Barnhill plays a little girl who appears to be the only one in her orphanage who can see and speak to the title monstrous giant, who will take her the mysterious Giant Country. Take a peek at the very first look at Disney’s The BFG below.
