After a teaser that left us wanting more a few months ago, Disney is back with the official trailer for Steven Spielberg’s The BFG. The friendly giant didn’t really make an appearance in the teaser, but the new video makes up for that, showing us the glorious special effects that will define the upcoming movie.
Shot using motion-capture, the Big Friendly Giant played by Mark Rylance appears to be quite… friendly. His giant ears are capable of hearing what goes on around town at a distance, and his mission is to deliver good dreams to kids.
Not all giants in giant country are friendly though, and we get to see two of the meaner ones in this new trailer, including Bloodbottler (Bill Hader) and Flushlumpeater (Jermaine Clement). In fact, the big friendly giant is an outcast in this world that most humans aren’t even aware of.
The BFG should definitely be on your must-see list, not only because of the story itself, which is adapted from Roald Dahl’s book of the same name, but also because the special effects needed to bring this world to life are incredible. Not to mention this is a Spielberg creation, which is one more reason to look forward to The BFG.
The movie hits theaters beginning July 1st, and the full trailer is embedded below.
