The BFG Rises Again



Roald Dahl’s Big Friendly Giant [BFG] was already made into a 1989 animated feature film originating in the UK with David Jason [“Danger Mouse”] as the BFG and Amanda Root [“Jane Eyre”] as Sophie, but now Steven Spielberg is looking to direct what is expected to be a live-action reboot – a la “Shrek”-style – for Dreamworks Animation. The plot will be based on Dahl’s children’s book from 1982 in which a little girl named Sophie enlists the aid of the BFG to fend off an invasion of England by other nefarious giants.

The newly rebooted “BFG” would be expected to have a 2016 release date.
