On the Red Carpet at The BFG Premiere!
I was back in LA this week for coverage of The BFG Premiere. Held at the El Capitan Theater, it was a whirlwind of amazing things, and my head is still spinning. The red carpet is a frenzy of excitement just about every direction that you look. Here’s a peek at the big premiere and a few of my favorite moments:
The BFG Premiere Pre-Party
We also took a break from our first walk on the red carpet to attended a fun pre-red carpet party that was very fun, and a nice break from the heat (it was SO hot out!!) Here are a few pics from that:
After the pre-party festivities, it was back to the red carpet to get ready for show time! Things had gotten much busier on the red carpet by the time we returned.
Celebrity Sightings at the Red Carpet Premiere of The BFG
Of course, a lot of big names turn out for these premieres. Here is a look at a few celebrity sightings:
This truly was a magical night! I can’t wait for you all to see this film, so mark your calendars — it will be in theaters on July 1st!!

I’ll also soon be sharing my interviews with Director Steven Spielberg and cast members Ruby Barnhill (“Sophie”), Rebecca Hall (Mary), Jemaine Clement (“Fleshlumpeater”), Penelope Wilton (“The Queen”), recent Academy Award winner Mark Rylance (“The BFG”). The interviewers were fantastic, and I can’t wait to share them with you!
The BFG Hits Theaters on July 1st!!
Have you read The BFG by Roald Dahl ? It’s a favorite around here. It’s SO good and when I first saw this movie poster, it was almost exactly as I had imagined it in my head. We cannot wait to see this film and I am thrilled that Disney will be bring this one to the big screen. If you want to read the book first, it’s such a great read and right now, only $5.99 on Amazon here. (*note, Amazon prices tend to change, so this might not always be the price)
Check out the latest trailer for THE BFG, which includes new, never-before-seen footage of the BFG (Big Friendly Giant). The film, which is directed by Steven Spielberg and based on the best-selling book by Roald Dahl, hits theaters everywhere on July 1st!
