About The BFG
The talents of three of the world’s greatest storytellers Roald Dahl, Walt Disney and Steven Spielberg finally unite to bring Dahl’s beloved classic The BFG to life. Directed by Spielberg, Disney’s The BFG tells the imaginative story of a young girl and a Giant who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country. It was genius of Roald Dahl to be able to empower the children with this story. He was very brave to introduce that combination of darkness and light which is a Disney’s original signature that appears in a lot of their earlier works like in Dumbo, Fantasia, Snow White, and Cinderella. Dahl was able to bridge the truly scary with a lesson of redemption and endurance for all ages. This feat was what attracted Spielberg to direct this particular Dahl book.
The BFG (Mark Rylance) is a giant himself, a Big Friendly Giant and nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24-feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. Giants like Bloodbottler (Bill Hader) and Fleshlumpeater (Jemaine Clement) on the other hand, are twice as big and at least twice as scary and have been known to eat humans, while the BFG prefers Snozzcumber and Frobscottle. Upon her arrival in Giant Country, Sophie, a precocious 10-year-old girl from London, is initially frightened of the mysterious giant who has brought her to his cave. She soon comes to realize that the seemingly intimidating BFG is quite gentle and charming, and, having never met a giant before, has many questions. The BFG brings Sophie to Dream Country where he collects dreams and sends them to children, teaching her all about the magic and mystery of dreams.
Having both been on their own in the world up until now, their affection for one another quickly grows. But Sophie’s presence in Giant Country attracts the unwanted attention of the other giants, who have become increasingly more bothersome. Spielberg introduces this story of friendship, loyalty and protecting your friends as it shows that even a little girl can help a big giant solve his biggest problems.
Sophie and the BFG soon depart for London to see the Queen (Penelope Wilton) and warn her of the precarious giant situation. Their warning is interrupted by the need to first convince the Queen and her maid, Mary (Rebecca Hall), that giants actually exist. Together, they come up with a plan to get rid of the giants once and for all.
