The BFG now on Bluray

A few months ago, The BFG had me in LA talking with Director Steven Spielberg and the cast of The BFG. A very memorable experience to say the least. Many have grown up with the Roald Dahl classic, and to see it made into a film has been a treat. And now, that magic of The BFG now on Bluray can be enjoyed anytime for years to come.

I shared in my interview with Steven, what he wanted people to walk away from with this movie. I just want people to understand how important it is to both give and receive hugs. And it doesn’t matter how different the person looks. How tall they are or how short they are or what color they are or what language they speak or what their different beliefs are that we all need to hug each other and we have to hug each other more when we’re so different from each other. That’s what I hope people get from this.”

When watching The BFG, this message is a great take away, but what else can you expect in this bonus features?

Disney presents a Roald Dahl classic directed by Steven Spielberg. In an imaginative tale filled with magic, wonder and unexpected friendship, a young girl is launched on an enormous adventure when she crosses paths with a mysterious being called the Big Friendly Giant.
