Chasing Dreams with The BFG

*I received an all expenses paid trip to LA to provide coverage of The BFG Event, however as always opinions are 100% my own. #TheBFG #TheBFGEvent #QueenofKatwe #FutureWorm

The BFG from Dreamworks

Earlier this month I headed out to LA and attended a Red Carpet Premiere of The BFG as well as got to interview some of the talent from the film. But the day has finally came that I can tell you all about The BFG Movie. Don’t worry I hate spoilers as much as you do, so I will try to not spoil it for you! 

The opening scenes reminded me of an old English town with cobblestone streets, a bar and of course an orphanage all set in England. (Which is fitting because that is where I always thought The BFG by Roald Dahl setting was.) Sophie took care of lots of things that she shouldn’t have had to as a kid, but sometimes responsibilities of kids are more than what meets the eye. 

Sophie Reading

Reading in the dark with a flashlight was one of the scenes that I could relate to most because as a kid I loved to read because it took me to another place. I still enjoy a good read, but don’t stay up as late as I used to reading, that is for sure. 

The BFG hiding in “common” places to not be seen was genius. I’m not sure which is my favorite, the lamp post or the tree…..Please let me know what you pick! 

Snozzcumbers look repulsive, I can’t even imagine trying to eat one of those nasty looking things.

“Your in Giant Country Now”…..It has to be the most magical place on the Earth! 

Some differences in the movie vs. the book 

Sophie held The BFG’s hair in the movie vs. in the book she rode in the BFG’s ear. 

Sophie was spit out of the giants mouth and landed on the giants cloak in the book. But in the movie she was still in the Snozzcumber. 

Chasing Dreams with The BFG

In The BFG two misfits become friends and go on quite the adventure together. But in the end they both learned that they needed each other to conquer their fears. We all need a best friend, but more importantly we all need to remember to trust in our hearts because then we can accomplish anything. It is in us all along we have to trust our hearts to get what we want out of life. Chasing dreams is a great representation of life because you chase goals that are often times your dreams and aspirations. But don’t just take my word for it, head out to your local theater and watch The BFG! It is now in theaters everywhere 7/1/16!
