The BFG, which is directed by Hollywood veteran Steven Spielberg, stars Ruby Barnhill as Sophie, an orphan girl who befriends the BFG and has to face the menace of other, far less friendly giants.

Mark Rylance, who was seen alongside Tom Hanks in Spielberg's recent thriller Bridge of Spies, voices the BFG.

In an interview with the Toronto Star, Spielberg spoke about his decision to cast Rylance, after a single day's work on Bridge of Spies. "I knew he was my BFG," he said. "He's such a consummate actor and such a deeply sensitive human being."

The BFG opens on July 1, 2016. It also stars Bill Hader, Penelope Wilton, Rebecca Hall, and Jemaine Clement.
