The BFG: Big Friendly Giant

The world is more giant than you can imagine.
  • Your ear-hairs make useful reins.

Based on the famous childrens’ book by Roald Dahl, this tells the story of a young girl and the Giant who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country. Upon her arrival in Giant Country, a precocious 10-year-old girl from London, is initially frightened of the mysterious giant who has brought her to his cave, but soon comes to realize that the BFG is actually quite gentle and charming, and, having never met a giant before, has many questions. Having both been on their own in the world up until now, their affection for one another quickly grows, but her presence in Giant Country has attracted the unwanted attention of the other giants, who have become increasingly more bothersome. So they depart for London to see the Queen and warn her of the precarious giant situation, but they must first convince the Queen that giants do indeed exist. Together, they come up with a plan to get rid of the giants once and for all. This film is releasing in 2D and 3D, this is the 2D version.
