[WATCH] Steven Spielberg’s ‘The BFG’ Magical Second Trailer; Sophie & the Gentle Giant


“The BFG” is one of the most exciting fantasy-adventure films kids can expect this year, and it at last has a preview trailer for all to watch. The full-length trailer shows off more of the visual effects and shares the glimpse of friendship between Sophie and the gentle Giant.

Directed by Steven Spielberg and produced by Walt Disney Pictures, the coming movie is adapted from the Roald Dahl classic. Legendary author Dahl is responsible for some of kids and young at heart’s favorite books, including “Charlie and The Chocolate Factory,” “Matilda,”  “James and the Giant Peach,” and “Fantastic Mr. Fox.”

But the full preview doesn’t give away a large amount of the overall plot. It mostly reveals the BFG (Mark Rylance)  and his relationship with Sophie (Ruby Barnhill). However, at the same time it has also introduced the huge, dangerous giants like Bloodbottler (Bill Hader) and Flushlumpeater (Jemaine Clement), who barely accept BFG as a part of their world.

According to WIRED the trailer shows the following: Pause at 0:49 to see some deft motion-capture work from Rylance, hiding in the shadows of a big city; 1:20 to see the BFG chopping his food, a wretched vegetable known as a snozzcumber; 1:45 for Sophie running around in what looks like Dream Country; 1:52 for the full reveal of the CGI work on the BFG’s face; 2:14 for the bigger, meaner giants, and what sounds like Clement’s voice as their leader.

Per the synopsis, according to reveals Celebrity Gossip: “In the film Sophie is a young orphan girl who is not like the other children. She stays awake while the others dream. One night, she encounters a giant, the BFG who arrives at her window. Unlike most giants, BFG turns out to be kind hearted. Despite of his frightening appearance, he refuses to scare and eat young boys and girls. That is why he has been outcast by other giants of his land.  BFG is gifted with unnaturally good hearing and speed who spends his life delivering good dreams to children.  BFG takes the young orphan Sophie to Giant Country where humans aren’t allowed to go.”

“The BFG” releases into theaters on July 1.
