Remodelling our children’s movies have become a gradual annoyance to the cinema lover. It seems nothing is sacred from the grabbing, greedy hands of Hollywood. Everything we’ve ever loved is going to get the big screen treatment, even if it has already a film before.
This is all good and done – but nothing will stop us being excited for The BFG.
Based on a book by Roald Dahl, The BFG revolves around a world where Giants are child chomping beasts who gobble kids up in the night. Sophie, a bright young girl, has been trying to spy them but comes across something completely new – The Big Friendly Giant whose sole purpose is to give dreams to young’uns. Together, they enter the biggest adventure ever!
The BFG has already had a collection of great reviews from its premiere at Cannes. We’re certainly wholly excited the adaptation, especially as Spielberg is handling it….The man can manipulate our childhood like a fine saxophone.
The BFG is out June 22nd
