The BFG is something that I had spent years off and on developing. Many, many, years. And I must say many, many conversations with Steven (Spielberg) who I kept saying, ‘This is really right for you.’," recalled Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy when I spent some time with her at the global press event for STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS last December. We were just a day or two out from the first teaser for Disney's The BFG, and Kennedy, whose collaboration with Spielberg dates back over three decades, was taking a momentary break from a galaxy far, far away to share some insight on a project that she'd invested much time in, and one that finally clicked at what could've been an inopportune time. "Within I would say a month after I decided to take over Lucasfilm he called me up and he goes, ‘You know, I read the script again and I really wanna make the movie.’ And I was, like, ready to go through the phone and strangle him!," she said with a smile and a chuckle, noting that the delays in making the The BFG actually served it well in that "the technology has caught up with making the film," allowing Spielberg to make something "quite spectacular." So why The BFG and why now? According to the director himself, "fate."

It was nearly a year ago today that I first posted about the long-gestating film adaptation of Roald Dahl's THE BFG, and today comes the very first trailer. From Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment and Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, the film is produced in part by Kathleen Kennedy (along with Spielberg, Frank Marshall and Sam Mercer), whom I spoke with on Sunday while attending the press event for her next film, STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. Kennedy explained that she'd worked on developing this with Director Spielberg for years - and that it was shortly after her acceptance of the Lucasfilm gig that he finally revisited the script and decided to give it a "go." Check out the magical new trailer below, and look for more on THE BFG and my interview with Kennedy coming very soon...

It's a growing phenomenon, but the face of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial has been making appearances in tree trunks with increasing frequency over the past few years. The latest such appearance comes from Scotland, where Billy Harley found one inside the trunk of a tree he was chopping for firewood. Harley, owner of the Uig Hotel on the Isle of Skye (whose publicist contacted Rock Father HQ this morning with the photo) recalls the moment he found the image of the lovable alien staring back at him...
