The talents of three of the world’s greatest storytellers – Roald Dahl, Walt Disney and Steven Spielberg – unite for the first time to bring Dahl’s beloved classic “The BFG” to life on screen. Directed by Spielberg, Disney’s “The BFG” tells the imaginative story of a young girl and the giant who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country.
The BFG Story
In the middle of the night, when every child and every grown-up is in a deep, deep sleep, all the dark things come out of hiding and have the world to themselves. That’s what Sophie, a precocious 10-year-old, has been told, and that’s what she believes as she lies sleepless in her own bed at her London orphanage. While all the other girls in the dormitory dream their dreams, Sophie risks breaking one of Mrs. Clonkers’ many rules to climb out of her bed, slip on her glasses, lean out the window and see what the world looks like in the moonlit silence of the witching hour. Outside, in the ghostly, silvery light, her familiar street looks more like a fairy tale village than the one she knows, and out of the darkness comes something long and tall…very, very tall. That something is a giant who takes Sophie and whisks her away to his home in a land far, far away. Fortunately for Sophie, he is the Big Friendly Giant (BFG) and nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24- feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, the BFG is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. His brothers are twice as big and at least twice as scary, and have been known to eat humans, but the BFG is a vegetarian and makes do with a disgusting vegetable called Snozzcumber.
