"I's hearing all the secret whisperings of the world…" Disney has unveiled a full-length trailer for Steven Spielberg's latest adventure, The BFG, an adaptation of the Roald Dahl book of the same name about "Big Friendly Giants". Ruby Barnhill stars as Sophie, a young girl who encounters the Big Friendly Giant and befriends him because he's different than the other giants (he doesn't eat boys and girls). The cast includes Mark Rylance as The BFG, plus Rebecca Hall, Bill Hader, Jemaine Clement, Penelope Wilton and Ólafur Ólafsson. This new trailer following that brief teaser looks quite spectacular, as expected from Spielberg, but it still has that half-CG feeling to it. I'm still curious to see this - can't resist Spielberg. Enjoy!
Here's the new full-length trailer for Steven Spielberg's The BFG, directly 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.
looks sweet. I wont ever be able to see BFG as anything other than Big Fucking Giant though.

And don't forget "Big Fucking Gun".

That's the only "BFG" to everyone who played Doom back in the day.

Haha. Same here. The film looks magical and I definitely want to see it. The giants look amazing but they are still hitting that uncanny valley a bit. I know the work that goes into all that since I'm in the business, so regardless, bravo to the effects teams on this.

I know. I was like, wow, what an inappropriate title for a kid's movie. Heck, let's face it, every kid is calling it Big Fucking Giant anyway.

BINGO. I was a huge fan of THE LITTLE PRINCE. I hope this can deliver a similar feel.

It's the Spiel, so I'll watch. Not totally feeling the trailer. Couldn't they just get a real giant?

The CGI on the giant looks awful.
