Following trailers released for the upcoming The Jungle Book, Disney continues to capitalize on childhood franchises with Roald Dahl’s The BFG. In this new trailer released for the live action film, the protagonist, 10-year-old Sophie, is kidnapped from her bed by the BFG (Mark Rylance) who then takes her to Dream Country where they begin to form a bond. However, Sophie’s presence begins to attract the attention of the not-so-friendly giants in Giant Country, forcing the BFG and Sophie to retreat to London where they must convince the Queen (Penelope Wilton) to prepare for the oncoming onslaught of giants. Directed by Steven Spielberg, The BFG is slated to arrive in theaters in July 1, 2016.
