The movie's source novel "The BFG" is dedicated to the book's author Roald Dahl's late daughter, Olivia, who passed away due to measles encephalitis at the age seven in 1962, twenty years before the book was first published in 1982. See more »
According to the postage date of one of the letters Sophie puts on the desktop, the events take place in September 1983. But when the Queen phones foreign presidents (suggested by the fact she tells to Nancy (Nancy Reagan) that she want to talk to Ronnie (Ronald Reagan)), she talks before with Boris. Assuming this refers to the Russian/Soviet leader, Boris Yeltsin was elected in 1991. Yuri Andropov headed the USSR at this time. See more »
It was the Witching Hour, when the Boogeyman comes out... when people go missing. The girls say the Witching Hour arrives at midnight. I think it comes at three in the morning, when I'm the only one awake. Like always. Like now.

Firstly this is not your average Spielberg movie, it's more of a feel good family movie. The reason people hate this movie is because they are comparing it to a proper Spielberg movie. I think Spielberg was trying to do something different this time for kid viewers. My family loved this movie and if you hated this movie while you're reading this, just give it another try. Lot's of people think this is very immature because of it's fart jokes, I was counting how many fart jokes there were surprisingly there were only four in the entire movie. The director has had a few bad movies recently (Indiana Jones and the kingdom of the Krystal Skull etc.) Basically what I'm trying to say is that this is a good movie and it is too much hate.
