As their companionship develops, Sophie's nearness pulls in the undesirable consideration of Bloodbottler, Fleshlumpeater and different monsters. In the wake of heading out to London, Sophie and the BFG must persuade Queen Victoria to help them dispose of all the awful goliaths for the last time.
|violence||Some family-friendly slapstick and gross-out humor. There are some mild scenes of violence depicted, such as towards the end of the film, where the giants are captured in nets and hoisted away by helicopters.|
|frightening||There are some frightening sequences in the film, though not prolonged and/or intense. The film contains some scenes that convey a mild sense of threat. These include a scene where a giant's hand is seen reaching in through the window to grab the protagonist as she is lying in bed; a scene where the protagonist is seen inside a saucepan as the giant talks about eating her while preparing food, and a scene where the protagonist is grabbed by a giant who drops her into his mouth, etc. The scenes may be unsettling for some younger children and would be more appropriate with parental guidance. Based on the children's book of the same name by Roald Dahl, 'The BFG' is a fantasy adventure about a young orphaned girl who is carried off to the magical land of the giants by a friendly giant.
