A feature-length animated version of Roald Dahl's novel. Sophie is a little girl who befriends BFG (David Jason), a big friendly giant, but soon discovers that his brethren aren't all as good-natured. It's up to her to convince the Queen of England that the likes of the Bloodbottler, the Trogglehumper and the Fleshlumpeater should be brought to book.

An excellent children's classic. I use to watch it alot on VHS as a child and was delighted to find it remastered for DVD. I bought it originally to share with my much younger adopted brother though I watch it more than he does, he doesn't even get a look in. It features the classic songs; "Whizz Pop" and "Sometimes Secretly." It is definitely a must buy for your children (or if you are just a big kid yourself, too which I identify).

Nothing to say really - it's a lovely film and with David Jason voicing the main character, it's just magical.
