Disney’s THE BFG opens on July 1, 2016. I have been waiting for this film. Why? Because I have been wondering how Disney and Steven Spielberg will adapt a somewhat (really) scary written story onto a huge screen so that children don’t want to run out of the theatre. I know they can do it. After all, Disney has been doing it for years, and Steven Spielberg – well, he’s Steven Spielberg. He can do just about anything! THE BFG is similar to the recent newest version of THE JUNGLE BOOK in that the films are both based on literature and center on a child hero making fantastical friends. I think that similarity – where a child is a hero – will make us love the film while we cheer for the child.
THE BFG centers on a little insomniac named Sophie, who spends most of the night wandering around a giant orphanage, reading, and hollering at the drunks in the London street below. That night-owl routine throws her in the path of a titular titan, who scoops Sophie right out of bed and whisks her off to the Land of the Giants. The unlikely pair bonds over books, dream catching with a big butterfly net and a shared sense of isolation. But the BFG’s nasty neighbors spoil this bliss with human “beans” hunts that culminate in the kidnapping (and presumable consumption) of scads of boarding school students. From there, it’s up to this plucky orphan, her brave giant and Queen Elizabeth II to end the mighty threat!
