Discover Giant Country at ODEON 
Find out your Giant name and explore the world of The BFG.

ODEON says...
Sophie is a young girl who lives in an orphanage. At three in the morning, when she’s the only one left awake, ‘The BFG’ appears at the window.

Soon, the Big Friendly Giant whisks her away from everything she’s known, and off onto an adventure. Together, they set out to capture the evil, man-eating giants who have been invading the human world.

Roald Dahl’s classic novel finally comes to the screen under the sure hand of Steven Spielberg, and stars Oscar winner Mark Rylance as ‘The BFG’.

The BFG is one of my favourite Roald Dahl books and I loved the first film. Dragged my teenage son to watch this new one the other day... I am so in love with this film not too much of the outline of the story has been messed with and its done so that at no point do you get boring slow bits!!. Go watch people. :)
