Laika once again outdoes themselves with this stunning magical work of art. The characters are well developed, the action is expertly choreographed and as with other Laika production, this doesn't hold back on darker elements which may make them the best animation studio in this day and age.
Despite some of the more nightmarish aspects being toned down, The BFG is still relatively faithful and is a very sweet as well as (surprisingly for a FX blockbuster) quaint.
Immersive, entertaining take on the story. Though not as memorable as the animated version, it still manages to be its own film.
Stick around for the end credits to hear Christopher Walken sing.
Clever and engaging with a surprising amount of social commentary within. The main characters are likable and this has perhaps some of the best computer animation seen in a recent major animated blockbuster. My one issue with the film is the surprise villain. It's becoming common in Disney's films but it just seemed to come out of nowhere here. Otherwise, I had a blast. And yes. It's even better than Frozen.
Fixes the problems the prequels had by giving us characters with actual personalities, snappy dialogue, and good balance between drama and humor. The new leads are very likable and it's great to see most of the old cast again with Harrison Ford slipping back comfortably into character as Han Solo. Admittedly, some of the CGI doesn't completely work and there were at least one odd acting moment that reminded me of Attack of the Clones, but the overall payoff has been worth the wait. If this is the direction that the remainder of this trilogy is going, bring it on!
