The first trailer for the upcoming The BFB by Steven Spielberg has arrived, and it looks super interesting.
The BFG (Big Friendly Giant) is based on Roald Dahl’s book by the same name.
The story follows a little girl named Sophie. a young orphan living with many other orphan girls, in the orphanage run by the cantankerous Mrs. Clonkers. One night, Sophie sees a cloaked giant blowing something via a trumpet-like into a bedroom window down the street; whereupon the giant carries her to his homeland of Giant Country. There, he identifies himself as the Big Friendly Giant (‘BFG’), who nightly blows bottled dreams into the bedrooms of children, and the other, larger giants as predators upon humans, mostly children. Because the BFG refuses to eat people or steal food from humans, he subsists on a foul-tasting vegetable known as a snozzcumber.
Yeah, I can see this becoming a big hit with all the kids. The BFG arrives in the summer of 2016.
