Get a tiny look at a huge giant in the teaser trailer for Disney’s The BFG.

Based on Roald Dahl’s classic children’s book, it tells the story of the friendship between a girl called Sophie and a big friendly giant from Giant Country.It’s been a while since we had a good, solid kids’ adventure movie along the lines of Narnia, Harry Potter or Hugo, but it looks like Steven Spielberg’s take on The BFG is gonna be one for the ages.The first teaser trailer has landed for Disney’s adaptation of Roald Dahl story The BFG, directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies) as the eponymous giant who befriends young girl Sophie (Ruby Barnhill). 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. See the teaser trailer below: Although this is definitely a children’s film, it’s a little bit scary, too — that giant hand reaching through the window is enough to give anyone nightmares! Spielberg has amassed an A-list cast for the family blockbuster, including Bill Hader (Trainwreck), Penelope Wilton (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), Rebecca Hall (The Gift) and Jemaine Clement (What We Do in the Shadows).

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. Directed by 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. This will be the first high profile, big budget adaptation of the children’s book by Roald Dahl (illustrated by Quentin Blake), which was the subject of a (pretty good if memory serves me correctly) 1989 animated treatment. 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.

The talents of three of the world’s greatest storytellers – Roald Dahl, Walt Disney and Steven Spielberg – finally unite to bring Dahl’s beloved classic “The BFG” to life. 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.

The fact that Disney is adapting this story is particularly heart-warming as Walt Disney himself worked with Roald Dahl; Dahl wrote the children’s book The Gremlins specifically for Disney, as part of a promotional campaign for a film that unfortunately was never made.
