Teaser Trailer for Steven Spielberg's Roald Dahl Adaptation 'The BFG'
"Never get out of bed. Never go to the window. Never look behind the curtain." Disney has debuted the first official teaser trailer for Steven Spielberg's new movie, an adaptation of Roald Dahl's The BFG. We've been hearing details about this for the past few years, as it's Spielbergs next movie following this year's Bridge of Spies. Ruby Barnhill plays a young girl named Sophie who meets a Big Friendly Giant that comes out at night. This is just an early teaser meaning we don't get to see much beyond the first scenes of the movie, but it certainly looks like a Spielberg movie again. The full cast includes Rebecca Hall, Mark Rylance, Bill Hader, and Jemaine Clement, none of whom are seen this yet. But I am definitely interested. Take a look below!
Here's the first official teaser trailer for Steven Spielberg's The BFG, found direct on YouTube:
A girl named Sophie (Ruby Barnhill) encounters the Big Friendly Giant who, despite his intimidating appearance, turns out to be a kindhearted soul who is considered an outcast by the other giants because unlike his peers refuses to eat boys and girls. The BFG is directed by Steven Spielberg. "In more than 40 years of making movies, I have been on the producing end of a number of films for The Walt Disney Company, but never as a director," said Spielberg, making his first kids movie for Disney. The screenplay is by Melissa Mathison (The Black Stallion, E.T., Kundun), adapted from Roald Dahl's book of the same name. Disney will release Spielberg's The BFG in theaters everywhere on July 1st, 2016 next summer. Anyone?
