Read the full synopsis

Full film details

Sophie is an imaginative little girl living in an orphanage in London; every night, she stays up past the witching hour waiting for something magical to happen. But nothing ever does. That is, until she hears noises in the darkness…

A ruckus in the alleyway, a massive hand reaching towards her, the adventure begins…

The BFG takes Sophie to Giant Country, where she learns that not everything is what it seems, and not all ‘monsters’ are scary.

After overcoming her initial fear, she gets to know the 24-foot-tall, big-eared man and finds out that, unlike the other, child-eating giants, he is a vegetarian who makes it his mission to bring good dreams to the children of the world.

As the two feast on snozzcumber and frobscottle, their friendship grows. But little girls aren’t typical residents of Giant Country, and the other giants begin to stir up even more trouble than usual.

Sophie and the BFG decide to solve the giant problem once and for all, but they’ll need help from someone special...

In this Disney take on Roald Dahl’s classic children’s novel, superstar director Stephen Spielberg (E.T) teams up with renowned stage actor Mark Rylance, who voices the BFG.

The supporting cast includes fresh face Ruby Barnhill as Sophie, and comedy talent in the form of Bill Hader (Saturday Night Live) and Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords) as the bully giants.
