#Disney unveils first poster for #TheBFG, directed by Steven Spielberg!
The BFG, while a giant himself, is a Big Friendly Giant and nothing link the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24 feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. Giants like Blookbottler and Fleshlumpeater 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.
Upon her arrival in Giant Country, Sophie, a precocious 10 year old girl from London, is intially frightened of the mysterious giant who has brought her to his cave, but soon comes to realize that the BFG is actually quite gentle and charming, and having never met a giant before, has many questions. The BFG brings Sophie to Dream Country where he collects dreams and sends them to children, teaching her all about the magic and mystery of dreams.
Having both been on their own in the world up intil now, their affection for one another quickly grows. But Sophie's presence in Giant Country has attracted the unwanted attention of the other giants, who have become increasingly more bothersome. Says, Spielberg, "It's a story about friendship, it's a story about loyalty and protecting your friends and it's a story that shows that even a little girl can help a big giant solve his biggest problems." Sophie and the BFG soon depart for London to see the Queen and warn her of the percarious giant situation, but they must first convince the Queen and her maid, Mary, that giants do indeed exist. Together, they come up with a plan to get rid of the giants once and for all.
