Did you ever have that one book as a child that you loved? That one book that left you feeling completely captivated and spellbound? That one that you wanted to read and read until you reached the end; then you wanted to pick it up and start rereading again?
For me that story, that book was The BFG.
Everything about the story was captivating. It was a book about dreams which left me dreaming. Dreaming of friendly giants, dream country and dreams coming true. Dreaming that everything and anything is possible.
So, you can imagine when I heard the news that Disney and Steven Spielberg were uniting to bring my favourite childhood classic to life I was beyond excited. Excited to witness the magic of giant country (would it be all that I imagined it would be?); excited to see the loving friendship between this ‘big friendly giant’ and wee orphan Sophie; excited to be transported back to my childhood and the world of Snozzcumbers, Frobscottle and Phizzizards. Yes, I was excited!
The BFG is a movie for adults and children alike. A movie about the mystery and magic of dreams and dreaming. A movie that will transport you back to your childhood, leaving you spellbound.
In cinemas from July 7th (perfectly timed for the school holidays), The BFG should definitely be on your agenda. Take a sneaky peek here and tell me you don’t want to go and see it.
