Adapted by the writer and director who brought you ‘E.T.,’ this Roald Dahl movie looks like a modern classic.

The trailer for Steven Spielberg‘s The BFG is a guaranteed tearjerker, combining childhood nostalgia with cutting edge visual effects.

The Roald Dahl classic follows a young girl who befriends a giant nicknamed BFG (for “big friendly giant”), a soft-hearted vegetarian from a society of man-eating monsters.

Spielberg’s live action adaptation stars British theater actor Mark Rylance, who won an Oscar this year for Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies. Newcomer Ruby Barnhill plays the young orphan Sophie.

With a screenplay adapted by E.T. scribe Melissa Mathison, we hope this turns out to be the modern classic Roald Dahl fans deserve.
