Format: DVD
This is an animated version of the children's story "The Big Friendly Giant" by Roald Dahl. While ostensibly a childrens story, it contains much that will keep mothers and fathers watching as well.
As befits a children's story, the plot is simple and direct. A small girl, Sophie, is kidnapped by a friendly giant when she catches him at his work delivering dreams. She discovers many things about giants and their world including the fact that there are also some very bad giants who want to eat people.
Eventually, Sophie and the Big Friendly Giant enlist the help of the Queen of England and they set out to catch the bad giants.
Children as young as four years old will enjoy this film. They may be little afraid but it's not so bad as to give them nightmares. The film will also appeal to older children too as the story, while simple in it's barest form, contains enough detail and wit to maintain interest.
Also, children will find a lot to talk about in the film and, if parents buy the original novel, they have something to read to, or with their child.
Sometimes, children watch a film over and over until it is worn out. In this case, be warned, they may watch this one so much that they wear out the player!

David Jason is the master of voice overs for children's stories and in this one he surpasses himself. I'm more than happy to sit down with my granddaughter when she asks to watch it time after time. Another classic which should be in everyone's home.

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).

Purchased for my daughter who has read the book and is covering Roald Dahl stories as a topic at school. She loved the old style animation as oppose the modern CG heavy cartoons and that the film sticks fairly faithfully to the book.
