The talents of three of the world’s greatest storytellers – Roald Dahl, Walt Disney and Steven Spielberg –unite for the first Ɵ me to bring Dahl’s beloved classic “The BFG” to life on screen. 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.
Over the summer I had the chance to see this movie at it’s premiere, and interview the director and much of it’s cast. Then, this month it’s like the experience came full circle as I went to the Moana premiere and also got to learn a little more about The BFG release on Blu-Ray.
Walt Disney Studios and Steven Spielberg came together for the first time to retell a magical story by Roald Dahl on the 100th anniversary of his birth. The BFG was brought to life on the big screen and tells the imaginative story of a young girl and a giant who introduces her to the wonders of Giant Country.
Sophie is played by adorable Hollywood newcomer Ruby Barnhill. Academy Award® winner Mark Rylance plays the 25 foot friendly giant himself. Jemaine Clement plays the beastie role of Fleshlumpeater (which is actually pretty hilarious).

- BRINGING THE BFG TO LIFE
- THE BIG FRIENDLY GIANT AND ME
