Storytelling magic – The BFG

Once upon a time, I was a performer. One thing that may interest you, was the use of Roald Dahl monologues in the performing arts. From The Twits, to The Witches, to my favourite, The BFG. I think it’s safe to say The BFG is a favourite among many. The story has multiple key themes and messages, teaching young children to never judge a book by it’s cover being the most important.

Here we are, in the present where we indeed have been given a present. Steven Spielberg will be bringing this classic tale to life, in the live action adaptation of the book. The story focuses on a young girl called Sophie (Ruby Barnhill) who befriends the Big Friendly Giant (Mark Rylance). If you haven’t read the book, make sure you do so, it’s a beautiful story about acceptance and love, with challenges and obstacles along the journey, just to make things interesting.

As you’ll see in the trailer, Spielberg captures us with child like wonder, through the images, the music, the words, and that’s just the teaser. I have to say, you get a Peter Pan and Harry Potter vibe from the trailer, which makes it all that more thrilling and exciting. I’m definitely looking forward to it!
