Brought to you for the first time DIGITALLY RESTORED and in WIDESCREEN on DVD and Blu-ray and available to download from iTunes, FremantleMedia Enterprises presents THE BFG – THE BIG FRIENDLY GIANT, available to own from 10th September 2012. In celebration of the 30th anniversary since the publishing of the book, THE BFG movie has been lovingly restored from the original film reels, and as originally intended, to be seen in widescreen for the first time! The DVD and Blu-ray include an exclusive interview with the creator Brian Cosgrove from the famous Cosgrove Hall studios.

Re-live your childhood with this charming animated adaptation of Roald Dahl’s celebrated and timeless story and follow the adventures of lonely orphan girl Sophie as she meets her twenty-five foot high prince and is whisked off into the wonders of Dreamland. Tasked with harvesting dreams and blowing them into the minds of children with his magical trumpet, the Big Friendly Giant pulls Sophie into his magical Giant Country, full of snozzcumbers and whizzpoppers to help him defeat the evil gargantuan grumps who are filling the heads of England’s children with fear and dread.

Together, and with the help of Her Majesty the Queen, they deliver the most spectacular dreams imaginable, and now you too can revisit the magic of this wonderful and inspiring tale. Originally nominated for Best Children’s Program by the Academy of Film and Television, and starring stellar British talent including David Jason (Only Fools and Horses, A Touch of Frost), Amanda Root (Jane Eyre, The Iron Lady) and Angela Thorne (To The Manor Born, The Royal), THE BFG is a must have addition to any film collection and a beautiful story for all children, adults and dreamers everywhere.
