An orphan little girl befriends a benevolent giant who takes her to Giant Country, where they attempt to stop the man-eating giants that are invading the human world.
Mark Rylance was immediately inspired by Melissa Mathison's screenplay, and said: "Melissa added some twists and turns and made Dahl's original story much more dramatic, in a way that gives you more of a chance to see the friendship develop. He is just misunderstood. The BFG and Sophie are both isolated beings, and they find a friend who understands them, maybe better than they do, and those are the best kind of friends. That's part of the great love and friendship they have for each other."
It was the Witching Hour, when the Boogeyman comes out... when people go missing. The girls say the Witching Hour arrives at midnight. I think it comes at three in the morning, when I'm the only one awake. Like always. Like now.
[French version only] The tags on the dream bottles are translated in French. However, after Sophie comes back to Giant Country, we see a close-up shot of the bottles with French dream titles and a couple of shots later, the titles seen in the background are in English.
"For our Melissa."
