I’m so excited to see “The BFG” with my daughter next week. She has introduced me to Roald Dahl again through her school reading and I’m going to introduce her to her first Steven Spielberg movie.
“The BFG” movie scoop is based on a book by Roald Dahl, who wrote some of my favorites like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Matilda. It’s about a young girl and the giant who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country. When it premiered at the recent Cannes Film Festival, it had one of the longest standing ovations ever recorded.
“The BFG” opens in U.S. theaters on July 1, 2016, the year that marks the 100th anniversary of Dahl’s birth.
