Friday July 1, 2016 is the opening day for Disney’s The BFG! The BFG is based on the beloved children’s book by Roald Dahl and marks the first time Steven Spielberg has directed for Disney. So it’s kind of a big deal.
Having both been on their own in the world up until now, their affection for one another quickly grows. But Sophie’s presence in Giant Country has attracted the unwanted attention of the other giants, who have become increasingly more bothersome. Says Spielberg, “It’s a story about friendship, it’s a story about loyalty and protecting your friends and it’s a story that shows that even a little girl can help a big giant solve his biggest problems.” Sophie and the BFG soon depart for London to see the Queen (Penelope Wilton) and warn her of the precarious giant situation, but they must first convince the Queen and her maid, Mary (Rebecca Hall), that giants do indeed exist. Together, they come up with a plan to get rid of the giants once and for all.
If you’ve read the book or already seen the movie, you already know the BFT has his own language called Gobblefunk. Here are a few examples:
Delumptious … Delicious
Skumping … Worried
Rummytot … Nonsense
Phizzwizard … a Happy Dream
