Given this film directed by Steven Spielberg, clearly fans can expect exciting action and thrilling adventure. Perhaps a class with The Adventures of Tintin : The Secrets of the Unicorn is a 2011 release then. There, Spielberg can present faithfully the elements that make the adventures of Tintin can still be enjoyed until now. It would be shocking if it turns out he was not able to present a faithful adaptation that way as well.
At a minimum, the result should be closer to the vision of Roald Dahl than Michael Bay-style modernization.
But one warning for parents: although it can be enjoyed by all ages, do not be surprised if there are parts that will be felt creepy in The BFG. After all, the film is based on the works of Roald Dahl, the author who sometimes mixes horror and death in children's books though. Even his most famous book was, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, still has some parts that can feel horror for children.
At least, there is the major strengths of this film which is already visible: the visual. Starting from the beginning to the end, the visual of the trailer The BFG is really beautiful and extraordinary. The appearance of the giant made with a little cartoon style, but still feels alive. Not to mention the world presented therein.
