Watch the Teaser for Steven Spielberg’s Adaptation of the Beloved ‘BFG’


After more than 30 years of entertaining children, Roald Dahl’s The BFG may as well be a fairy tale out of Mother Goose’s storybook. Or at least, that seems to be level of reverence laid on Steven Spielberg’s/Disney’s cinematic adaptation.

Disney released the first trailer for The BFG Wednesday. The generous (near two minute) teaser — which has a decidedly “bedtime story” vibe — simply introduces the premise, with little Lucy the orphan explaining the rules of her world, which leads to her first introduction to the big, friendly giant.


Disney’s The BFG opens in theaters July 1, 2016.
