He’s big, he’s friendly and he’s giant – he’s the Big Friendly Giant! Why is this a thing? Well, giants are usually nasty types. How nasty? They eat children! But the BFG doesn’t glean any culinary satisfaction from devouring kiddies, instead finding them fascinating – in particular their dreams. One such child is Sophie, a 10-year-old insomniac who’s captured by the BFG one night and taken to Giant Country (hey, ‘The Land of the Giants’ was taken), telling her that she must stay there now so as not to reveal the existence of giants to the human world. But upon witnessing how he’s picked on by other giants, Sophie hatches a cunning plan to save the BFG and solve mysteries of missing children back in her own world. Based on the beloved book by Roald Dahl, this is a delightful family fantasy from the king, Steven Spielberg, who also proves that he can drop a wicked fart gag. PARP!
