"Hold your breath. Cross your fingers. Here we go!" Disney has unveiled another new full-length trailer for Steven Spielberg's adaptation of Roald Dahl's The BFG - meaning The Big Friendly Giant. The film just premiered at the Cannes Film Festival yesterday, which is why this trailer is being released now to help build buzz. Ruby Barnhill plays Sophie, a young girl who befriends a giant that takes her on an adventure, eventually meeting the Queen of England. Mark Rylance voices and gives a motion capture performance as the BFG, with the cast including Bill Hader, Jemaine Clement, Rafe Spall and Penelope Wilton. This is definitely a kids movie and the kind of amusing entertainment you can take the whole family to see.
Here's the third official trailer for Steven Spielberg's The BFG, direct from Disney's 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 starting July 1st this summer. First teaser.
