Disney’s “The BFG” (#giveaway)

the_bfgbluray-jpg_rgb
Here’s a question that can divide friends quickly: when both are available, do you read the book or see the movie first? We’re generally book first, but I think we’ll be making an exception for Disney’s “The BFG”. Surprisingly, I don’t think that I read the Roald Dahl classic as a child – though it’s possible that I did and I’ve just forgotten – and Disney’s version is so visually stunning that I can’t wait to share it with my family!

“The BFG” unites the talents of three of the world’s greatest storytellers – Roald Dahl, Walt Disney and Steven Spielberg – to bring to life the classic tale of a courageous little girl named Sophie (newcomer Ruby Barnhill) and a gentle and charming Big Friendly Giant (Oscar®-winner Mark Rylance) who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country. Spielberg employs a new, hybrid style of filmmaking blending live-action and performance-capture techniques, resulting in genuine, heartfelt performances and super-photorealistic animation.

Families and fans will be swept away by this spectacular adventure and delight in extensive bonus features, including a behind-the-scenes look at the making of “The BFG” hosted by Ruby Barnhill and featuring Steven Spielberg; a charming, all-new short; a fun and whimsical tutorial on the Big Friendly Giant’s unique language of Gobblefunk; a touching tribute to screenwriter Melissa Mathison (“E.T. the Extraterrestrial,” “The Black Stallion”); and more.

I had wonderful intentions of watching this with my daughters before writing this post, but an unexpected week of sickness around our house meant that no one was up for anything that we would need to pay attention to, and now it’s going to be Christmas Day on Sunday and there is just no time in general! We all enjoyed the previews for it when it was in theatres but I thought that it would be too much for them on the big screen, so hopefully one day in January we’ll have a relaxing afternoon of snuggles and watching “The BFG” before we read the book to compare the two!

I was sent “The BFG” to facilitate this post. All opinions are always my own!

    My favourite character is Ariel from the Little Mermaid. Thought animated right away but Jack Sparrow is a Disney character too.
