"A Whimsical Treat!" - Lynne Heffley, L.A. Times
Based on the best-selling children's book by Roald Dahl, renowned author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach, comes The BFG, a delightful tale of friendship between a young orphan named Sophie and a 25-foot tall Big Friendly Giant.
Unlike other giants, The BFG is a bit of a fairy prince. Each night he catches dreams in Dream Country and with a magical trumpet blows the good ones into the minds of sl--ping children. Lately, however, the children of merry ol'England are hardly safe in their beds due to the loathsome activities of bigger, "less friendly" giants. Sophie and the BFG are determined that these beasts must be stopped and together set out on an amazing journey through incredible lands. Finally, by enlisting the help of Her Majesty the Queen, Sophie and The BFG are able to thwart the fiendish plans of the evil giants, and England's children are, again, safe and blessed with the best, most dazzling dreams ever imagined.
Nominated for an Academy of Film and Television Award for Best Children's Program, The BFG is a family masterpiece bursting with sparkling animaiton, wonderful music and a timeless story that will be cherished and remebered for years to come!
