If you’ll recall, on our 2016 Disney Movies Preview podcast, I predicted that The BFG would be great. Jason disagreed with me completely, and I had a hard time getting anyone else to admit that this would be good. There’s a long way to go from teaser trailer in December to final film 6 1/2 months later. But after watching this trailer, I feel vindication coming on. It’s been a long time coming, and it’s too bad that they haven’t been able to find more projects on which to collaborate. But this is what can happen when Spielberg and Disney (and Walden Media and DreamWorks too) work together.
What do you think? Are you excited for the first Disney film directed by Steven Spielberg?
