The BFG Movie Premiere at Leicester Square #TheBFG

When it comes to blogging, there are days that my girls are extremely happy that I went for the career swap from being a secondary school teacher to a professional blogger.

Last Sunday was undoubtedly one of these days as we were invited to the premiere of the BFG (Big Friendly Giant) movie at Leicester Square, and I cannot wait to share what we thought about the movie as well as a few photos from the red carpet!

About the movie

From the imaginations of two of the world’s greatest storytellers, Roald Dahl and Steven Spielberg, THE BFG tells the extraordinary tale of a young girl named Sophie (played by British newcomer Ruby Barnhill) and the Big Friendly Giant (played by Oscar Winner Mark Rylance) who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country.

Together they embark on a marvellous and buckswashling adventure filled with snozzcumbers, dream jars, frobscottle and even the Queen! The mismatched pair form an unlikely friendship that will inspire enormous bravery in the BFG and give Sophie a taste of the family she dreams of.

Directed by three-time Academy Award® winner Steven Spielberg, the film reunites the director with his Oscar-nominated collaborator on E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Melissa Mathison, who adapted the childrens author’s timeless adventure for the big screen.

The story was first published in 1982 and has been enchanting readers of all ages ever since. Dahl’s books, which also include Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda and Fantastic Mr. Fox, are currently available in 58 languages and have sold over 200 million copies worldwide.

From the minds of two of the world’s greatest storytellers – Roald Dahl and Steven Spielberg – THE BFG will see a UK release on July 22nd 2016.

Our thoughts

The second the movie started, we were drawn into a magical world. I loved watching both my girls’ faces, and their expressions when little Sophie was introduced to the Giants Country.

Olivia looked very pleased to find out the BFG was really a friendly giant. Isabelle said her favourite part was exploring the Dream Country, the place The BFG goes to collect the dreams he delivers to human beans during the night…

This movie was full of magical moment, adventure and I would like to say a HUGE well done to Steven Spielberg, the man who brought Roald Dahl’s magic to the GIANT screen!


A MUST SEE movie this summer! Go and watch it this Friday!
