A girl named Sophie encounters the Big Friendly Giant who, despite his intimidating appearance, turns out to be a kindhearted soul who is considered an outcast by the other giants because, unlike them, he refuses to eat children.
We saw Disney’s new movie The BFG, directed by Steven Spielberg, based on the book by Roald Dahl. We were pretty excited for it and absolutely loved it! It was such a magical story, the graphics were amazing, the actors did a great job, even the streets of London looked magical. I am in love with the Big Friendly Giant, his facial expressions especially when he smiled made me so happy. There is just something magical about him!! I am still grinning.
There was plenty of comedy in the film, one particular scene the whole audience laughed so hard and for good reason. I won’t spoil it, but if you’ve seen it, you know which one I’m talking about 😉
Child friendly you ask? I went with an 8 year old, and he truly loved it! There is a lot of comedy that most children will love, we didn’t find it scary at all, even the nasty giants. I’m not sure if I’d take anyone under the age of 6 though, only because it took a while for the story to get going. There were a couple times where Mason asked “how long is this movie”. The audience was mainly older people, so keep that in mind if you have a child that can’t sit still or is very talkative, the theater audience was very quiet.
Other than suggesting you keep the really young ones at home, the movie was truly awesome!! It will definitely be one we purchase!
