Review

This animated TV version of Roald Dahl’s classic tale boasts the vocal talents of David Jason as the Big Friendly Giant and Amanda Root as Sophie, the little girl he befriends while delivering dreams to children. The two team up to defeat the bad giants, with a little help from the Queen of England (voiced by Angela Thorne). It’s a cute creation that will delight kids and Dahl fans of all ages.
