I can’t remember the last time my daughter was this excited about an upcoming movie. She has been counting down the days until The BFG comes out in theaters, and now it is here. (Poor thing, mom is making her wait until Sunday to see it!) These The BFG coloring pages and activity pages should help keep her entertained in the mean time.
Why is my 8 year old so excited for The BFG, because Disney is bringing one of our favorite books to the big screen. Yes, The BFG was one of my childhood favorites, and I was as pleased as I could be when my daughter fell in love with the story too.
If you aren’t familiar with Roald Dahl’s The BFG check out the movie trailer. As a HUGE fan of the book, I highly recommend that you (and your kids) read the book before seeing the movie! (Hurry!)

I know my daughter’s favorite activity will be the Gobblefunk Bookmarks. I’ll have to get out the contact paper to laminate a couple of them for her. She can use them in her next Roald Dahl book – James and the Giant Peach!
The BFG is something that I had spent years off and on developing. Many, many, years. And I must say many, many conversations with Steven (Spielberg) who I kept saying, ‘This is really right for you.’ And then, of course, within I would say a month after I decided to take over Lucasfilm he called me up and he goes, ‘You know, I read the script again and I really wanna make the movie.’ And I was, like, ready to go through the phone and strangle him! But not only having Steven involved in this but the fact that technology has caught up with making the film, is really quite spectacular. What he’s doing with this is gonna be pretty mind-blowing and very emotional. And sadly we had Melissa Mathison pass away, recently. She wrote the script and she did E.T. and so I think people are going to be incredibly pleased with how this movie turns out.
