Disney Unveils First Teaser Trailer for Steven Spielberg’s The BFG

10 Dec 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

Disney and Steven Spielberg team up to bring Roald Dahl classic to life in new movie.

A young girl named Sophie, played by actress Ruby Barnhill, is told to never get out of bed and look out the window, and to never look behind the curtain. It would follow in the footsteps of two big budget Charlie and the Chocolate adaptations, as well as well-received versions of Matilda, The Witches, and an animated treatment of James and the Giant Peach.

But when she does, she discovers the Big Friendly Giant – the BFG, played by English actor Mark Rylance, who needs the girl’s help to stop his human-hungry giant friends from eating children. Iconic children’s author Dahl, who died in 1990, was born in 1916 in his family home at Fairwater Road, Llandaff, Cardiff , and was schooled at the city’s Cathedral School. Bill Hader, Rebecca Hall, and Jemaine Clement round out the cast, with the screenplay by the late Melissa Mathison, who Spielberg worked with on ET: the Extra-Terrestrial. Like now.’ Outside, Sophie sees a group of cats yowling after a metal trash can gets knocked over, and stares on in shock as a large hand grabs it and pulls it out of sight.

Viewers then see the young girl hurrying back to her bed, where she hides under the covers, as the hooded figure of the giant strides over to the orphanage window. Spielberg previously said: ‘In more than 40 years of making movies, I have been on the producing end of a number of films for The Walt Disney Company, but never as a director. ‘It is a special joy to be in the director’s chair as we start The BFG, alongside my long-time friends and film collaborators Kathy Kennedy, who introduced me to this project, Frank Marshall and Melissa Mathison.
