Producers Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy were familiar with many of source author Roald Dahl's other books like "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory", "James and the Giant Peach", and "Matilda" which have sold over two hundred million copies worldwide, but neither had read "The BFG". The above-mentioned stories have been filmed (The BFG (1987), Matilda (1996), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971), and James and the Giant Peach (1996)). It wasn't until a chance encounter on the set of Milk Money (1994) that Kennedy read "The BFG" (1982) novel for herself.
