Ten-year-old Sophie is in for the adventure of a lifetime when she meets the Big Friendly Giant. Naturally scared at first, the young girl soon realizes that the twenty-four-foot behemoth is actually quite gentle and charming. As their friendship grows, Sophie's presence attracts the unwanted attention of Bloodbottler, Fleshlumpeater, and other giants. After travelling to London, Sophie and the BFG must convince Queen Elizabeth to help them get rid of all of the bad giants once and for all.Written by
The filmmakers were all in agreement that this movie felt like a hybrid between a classic Disney movie and a movie from Amblin Entertainment, the latter being the production company that Steven Spielberg, Kathleen Kennedy, and Frank Marshall founded in 1981. So they were thrilled when the studio green-lit this movie in the spring of 2015, making this the first Walt Disney Pictures movie to be directed by Steven Spielberg. Kathleen Kennedy said: "There's a level of expectation that fans and audiences of Walt Disney movies expect. And we're proud to have the film attached to such a studio." See more »
The BFG took Sophie away and back to Giant Country because, as he explained to her, she had seen him, so her couldn't let her back. Yet not much later he was putting her back in the orphanage even though she didn't want to go. So his initial explanation for taking her no longer made sense. See more »

Before to see the adaptation, the mix of emotion and prudence defines me. because, from an early age, I was one of small fans of the book. and the name of Steven Spielberg, as always, represents a good promise. but each adaptation of a lovely book is a challenge first for viewer. and the film is real beautiful. for that, not only the technology has a significant role but the option, a profound inspired one, of director for the couple Mark Rylance and Ruby Barnhill. Rylance is the expected BFG for me. so familiar and admirable performed than the respect for its performer becomes more than great. Barnhill is and she is not the Sophie who I imagine. but she has the all virtues for become, scene by scene. it is a lovely film. and that is only important thing. because it seems bizarre to compare it with more than the novel of Roald Dahl. and the verdict is real favorable for Steven Spilberg project.
