Disney's The BFG

As Disney’s newly released trailer for The BFG says, “Hold your breath, cross your fingers, and here we go,” because adventure awaits. Steven Spielberg‘s most recent directorial effort is an adaptation of the Ronald Dahl novel of the same name that centers on a young girl (newcomer Ruby Barnhill) who finds herself in the world of giants and befriends one of the smallest of the group (Academy Award-winner Mark Rylance).

The trailer for the film provides a little more story than the first. It also expands on the world of the giants and shows us the visually stunning creation that Spielberg will show us this summer. Check out the full trailer here below.

Now the film has premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and was met with mixed reviews, although critics may not be the right target audience for this one given the family friendly vibe the trailer is giving off. While that may be a bit disconcerting, it is nice to know that Spielberg is still making an effort to give us films that expand our imagination and allow us to have some suspension of disbelief.

The trailer itself gives the impression that it will be whimsical and something geared towards a younger audience who might not be able to watch Marvel Studio films or just don’t want to see another movie with talking animals.

Also starring Bill Hader, Jemaine Clement, Penelope Wilton, and Rebecca Hall, The BFG makes its way into theaters on July 1, 2016.

The BFG (Mark Rylance), while a giant himself, is a Big Friendly Giant and nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24-feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. Giants like Bloodbottler (Bill Hader) and Fleshlumpeater (Jemaine Clement) on the other hand, are twice as big and at least twice as scary and have been known to eat humans, while the BFG prefers Snozzcumber and Frobscottle. Upon her arrival in Giant Country, Sophie, a precocious 10-year-old girl from London, is initially frightened of the mysterious giant who has brought her to his cave, but soon comes to realize that the BFG is actually quite gentle and charming, and, having never met a giant before, has many questions. The BFG brings Sophie to Dream Country where he collects dreams and sends them to children, teaching her all about the magic and mystery of dreams. Having both been on their own in the world up until now, their affection for one another quickly grows, but Sophie’s presence in Giant Country has attracted the unwanted attention of the other giants, who have become increasingly more bothersome. Sophie and the BFG soon depart for London to see the Queen (Penelope Wilton) and warn her of the precarious giant situation, but they must first convince the Queen and her maid, Mary (Rebecca Hall), that giants do indeed exist. Together, they come up with a plan to get rid of the giants once and for all.
