Together with them and Disney, there are many reasons why I am so excited about this joint venture.”

Mark Rylance will be playing the “Big Friendly Giant” and newcomer Ruby Barnhill will play Sophie. Penelope Wilton will play The Queen and Rebecca Hall was cast as Mary, the Queen’s maid.

Rounding out the cast of the Roald Dahl-movie are Bill Hader, Jemaine Clement, Michael David Adamthwaite, Daniel Bacon, Chris Gibbs, Adam Godley, Jonathan Holmes, Paul Moniz de Sa and Olafur Olaffson as the giants.
