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.
Fourth family/children's feature film directed Steven Spielberg following Hook (1991), The Adventures of Tintin (2011), and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982). It's Spielberg's twelfth if one counts War of the Worlds (2005), his two Jurassic Park movies, and his four Indiana Jones movies.
Why did you take me?
The BFG: Because I hears your lonely heart, in all the secret whisperings of the world.
[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.
The Amblin Entertainment logo has the rare theme in it.
