'The BFG' Latest Trailer Dazzles with a Journey to Giant Country
A new trailer of Disney's big-screen adaptation of Roald Dahl’s beloved classic “The BFG” has just been launched. Directed by Steven Spielberg, Disney’s “The BFG” tells the imaginative story of a young girl and the Giant who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country. The trailer itself shows us how the young girl was picked and stealthily taken by a big friendly giant. We also get to see glimpses the other inhabitants of Giant Country.
The BFG (Mark Rylance) 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.
Directed by Steven Spielberg from a screenplay by Melissa Mathison is based on the best-selling novel by Roald Dahl. “The BFG” stars Mark Rylance, newcomer Ruby Barnhill, Penelope Wilton, Jemaine Clement, Rebecca Hall, Rafe Spall and Bill Hader.
“The BFG” opens across the Philippines on August 10, 2016, the year that marks the 100th anniversary of Dahl’s birth.
