Plot Description

One moonlit night, little Sophie is snatched from her bed at Mrs. Clonkers’ orphanage by an awesome giant who whisks her away on a magical, thrilling and funny adventure. Roald Dahl’s (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach) enchanting, best-selling children’s book comes to life in this classic, animated musical feature by the award-winning Cosgrove Hall Studio, makers of DangerMouse and The Wind in the Willows. Unlike the Bloodbottler, the Fleshlumpeater and the Bonecruncher, the Big Friendly Giant is a good giant who blows sweet dreams into the bedroom windows of children as they slumber. When Sophie learns that the monstrous crew of meanies is off to England to gobble up innocent boys and girls, she sets out to stop them once and for all, with the help of her new, rather large, friend. The BFG shows the most tender and dreamlike side of celebrated author roald Dahl as he depicts the amazing friendship that grows between a little girl and a big-hearted Giant.
