Disney just released the first poster for The BFG, which will be in theaters on July 1st this year.
This movie is based on the classic book by Roald Dahl, and it was one of my kids’ favorite books, so I can’t wait to see this adaptation! The BFG (Mark Rylance) is a Big Friendly Giant, who stands 24 feet tall and keeps to himself. Giant Country includes some other giants who are not quite as friendly, which you can kind of guess from the names Bloodbottler and Fleshlumpeater. The movie centers around a 10 year old girl Sophie, who The BFG teaches about the magic and mystery of dreams. Check out the teaser trailer below:
This movie is directed by three-time Academy AwardÂ® winner Steven Spielberg (â€œBridge of Spies,â€ â€œSchindlerâ€™s List,â€ â€Saving Private Ryanâ€) from a screenplay by Melissa MathisonÂ (â€œE.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial,â€ â€œThe Black Stallionâ€) and when you combine their talent with Roald Dahl’s fantastic story this should be an amazing movie!Â LikeÂ The BFGÂ on FacebookÂ to stay up to date on all the action.
