After this weekend, just about everyone’s sure to know about the Big Friendly Giant! Based on Dahl’s The BFG story, Disney’s “big” new release hits theaters July 1! And what makes this family film extra enticing? The fact that it’s directed by none other than Steven Spielberg!
The BFG tells the story of Sophie, a young girl who meets the Big Friendly Giant. BFG opens her eyes to amazing wonders (and dangers) of Giant Country.
Many of my blogger friends had the privilege of meeting with Mr. Spielberg recently to learn more about The BFG and I’m beyond jealous (and pretty darn proud) of them all! Take a look at some of my favorite blog posts about The BFG:
