Peek into the world of giants in full trailer for Steven Spielberg’s The BFG — watch

Academy Award winner Mark Rylance goes from Soviet spy to Shawn Bradley

This summer, Steven Spielberg will sprinkle his signature movie magic on Roald Dahl’s classic children’s story, The BFG. So far we’ve only been treated to a teaser of the filmmaker’s first live-action 3D feature, but now we have a full trailer that offers a wide, expansive look at what we can safely call: “giant country.”

The story follows young star Ruby Barnhill who plays an orphan girl named Sophie. In the middle of the night, she’s abducted by a big ol’ giant — voiced by recent Academy Award winner Mark Rylance, no less — and whisked away to the land of tall folk and dreams. Judging from the trailer, it’s going to be quite a spectacle.

So, what are you waiting for?
