A still from Roald Dahl's The BFG movie

The teaser trailer for Steven Spielberg's adaptation of Roald Dahl's much-loved classic The BFG is here.

The talents of two of the world’s greatest storytellers - Roald Dahl and Steven Spielberg - finally unite to bring Dahl’s beloved classic The BFG to life.

Directed by Spielberg, The BFG follows the dream-catching, gobblefunking Big Friendly Giant (who made his first appearance in Danny, the Champion of the World), his new friend Sophie and even the Queen of England, as they set out to stop the horrible Other Giants who live alongside The BFG in Giant Country and generally prefer eating human beans to catching dreams.

"I think it was kind of genius of Roald Dahl to be able to empower the children. It was very, very brave of him to introduce that combination of darkness and light, and being able to do scary, but also be redemptive at the same time and teach a lesson, an enduring lesson, to everyone, it was a wonderful thing for Dahl to have done, and it was one of the things that attracted me to want to direct this Dahl book," says Spielberg.

The BFG opens in UK and Irish cinemas on July 22nd 2016.
