Steven Spielberg will mark his first venture directing a Disney movie with the adaption of Roald Dahl’s BFG or “The Big Friendly Giant.” Spielberg has teamed up with Disney to produce films, but this will be the first time he will sit in Disney’s director’s chair. The film will be released in time for the celebration of a century since Dahl’s birth. The beloved children’s author was best known for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda and James and the Giant Peach.

Tony award winning actor Mark Rylance will be in the title role with Ruby Barnhill cast as Sophie, a London girl who is taken by an affable big man on a tour of his amazing world, as reported by Coming Soon.net. The screenplay is written by Melissa Mathison who last worked with Spielberg on the film E.T. the Extra Terrestrial.
