The trailer shows young Sophie (Ruby Barnhill) being whisked away from her lonesome orphanage by the BFG himself (Bridge of Spies’ Mark Rylance) to a land of magic and adventure. Much like its new adaptation of The Jungle Book, Disney’s The BFG looks pumped with childlike fantasy, immersive special effects, and an innocent youth dropped into a colorful CGI battle of good and evil.
The new adaptation, which has been in the works as far back as 1991, is will hit the big screen on July 1. What do you think of this sleek, high-production-value take on an old classic? Let us know in the comments!
