The latest trailer for The BFG, Steven Spielberg’s first film ever released by Disney, is here. And it looks just as whimsical as that previous sentence makes it sound. Based on the Roald Dahl book, it hits theaters July 1.
Newly minted Oscar-winner Mark Rylance plays the lead character and the uncanny likeness of the actor and the giant he plays is the biggest take away here. Rylance has a real presence to him. A look that screams experience. And it’ll be great to see how that plays out in this film, among Spielberg’s fantastic visuals.
