What better way to mark this year’s Roald Dahl centenary than with a brand new big friendly giant? At the centre of the tale is Sophie (Ruby Barnhill), a characterful and curious young girl living in a London orphanage. One night, she is whisked off to a land of giants, where the BFG (Rylance) teaches her about dreams and protects her from the Bloodbottler (Bill Hader) and the Fleshlumpeater (Jemaine Clement).
