bfgBased on the Roald Dahl novel, Ruby Barnhill stars as a young girl who meets the Big Friendly Giant, played by Mark Rylance, and finds herself in an adventure in Giant Country.

“I think it was kind of genius of Roald Dahl to be able to empower the children. It was very, very brave of him to introduce that combination of darkness and light,” said Spielberg in a statement.  “And being able to do scary, but also be redemptive at the same time and teach a lesson, an enduring lesson, to everyone, it was a wonderful thing for Dahl to have done, and it was one of the things that attracted me to want to direct this Dahl book.”

The BFG arrives in theaters on July 1st in the US and July 22nd in the UK.
