The story begins in the first ‘BFG’ teaser

Disney dropped its first look at “The BFG” this morning, a teaser trailer that offers a glimpse of the titular character and the world he and young orphan Sophie will inhabit. Sophie disobeys the rules and stays up late reading, only to hear a noise outside and come face to face with a Big Friendly Giant. Who then grabs her out of bed. 

“And that is where our story begins,” Sophie tells us. 

The movie, set to be released on July 1, 2016, is based on the Roald Dahl book and directed by some guy named Steven Spielberg. It's got a bit of a “Harry Potter” flair to it, don't you think?
