Disney Releases New Spooky Trailer for The BFG Based on Roald Dahl’s Children’s Book.

Steven Spielberg is following up his Cold War drama “Bridge of Spies” with a family-friendly fantasy film, “The BFG,” based on Roald Dahl‘s 1982 children’s book.In Disney’s latest teaser trailer for its upcoming live-action film, The BFG, fans get a chilling glimpse at a children’s biggest fear come to life—a child-eating giant. “It was the witching hour when the boogeyman comes out, when people go missing,” a female child’s voice narrates as shots of eerily quiet streets and children asleep in an orphanage in the middle of the night play out in the nearly two minute clip.

From the looks of the first trailer for the new movie, though, the fact that it’s a family movie doesn’t mean it can’t be dark and maybe a little scary. “BFG” stands for “big friendly giant,” which ought to give audiences a clue that the title character of the movie likely doesn’t pose a threat to the story’s protagonist, Sophie (newcomer Ruby Barnhill). Directed by Steven Spielberg, the film is based off of the character’s of Dahl’s classic children’s tale of the same name, which chronicles the adventures of a little orphan girl named Sophie, the Queen of England, and the Big Friendly Giant—hence the initials BFG—whom embark on a journey to take down the man-eating giants who are swarming the earth. In the teaser, we hear Sophie talking about the mysterious ‘witching hour’ which comes ‘at three in the morning when I’m the only one left awake’. Fresh from his latest collaboration with Spielberg in Bridge of Spies, the pair have joined forces for the second time to make a film suited for all the family. Rylance’s 24 foot tall giant towers over Ruby Barnhill , who will play orphan Sophie, although, as is pointed out in Dahl’s book, 24 feet is puddlenuts in Giant Country.

This first teaser stops just short of revealing the character – filmed using stop motion techniques – in full, but does give a good look at the giant’s hand. 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. Sophie and the BFG soon depart for London to see Queen Victoria (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.
