Spielberg’s ‘The BFG’ Poster: ‘E.T. the Chocolate Factory’
Disney has released a teaser poster for “The BFG,” Steven Spielberg’s highly anticipated adaptation of the beloved children’s book by Roald Dahl.
As if the director and author required any introduction, Disney plays up their credentials in the one-sheet: “From the human beans that brought you ‘E.T’ and the author of ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ and ‘Matilda’ comes ‘The BFG’!”
The fantasy tells the story of a young girl named Sophie (Ruby Barnhill) and the 24-foot-tall Big Friendly Giant (Mark Rylance) who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country.
Also starring Bill Hader, Jemaine Clement, Penelope Wilton and Rebecca Hall, “The BFG” opens July 1.
