Following the film’s debut at Cannes, Steven Spielberg and Walt Disney Pictures have now released a brand new trailer for The BFG.
Adapted from Roald Dahl’s classic children’s tale, the new trailer focuses on the friendship that is formed between orphan Sophie (Ruby Barnhill), and her new found guardian The Big Friendly Giant (Mark Rylance). But these two friends are soon on the run from a host of nasty giants, and must use every trick in the book to outsmart them.
Always the master craftsman, Spielberg has balanced the touching human elements of the story with the stunning fantasy of Giant Country, which bears some amazing special effects thanks to New Zealand’s Weta Workshop.
The magic awaits for audiences of all ages when The BFG arrives in cinemas on July 1 in the US, July 7 in New Zealand and Australia and on July 22 in the UK.
