* DemotedToExtra: In the animated film, the giants do not feature as much as they do in the book. In the book, they are constantly being talked about and show up in many sequences.

** The Bloodbottler. In the book and animated film, he has a scene in the BFG's home that serves as an EstablishingCharacterMoment for the giants, and is therefore the only giant besides the Fleshlumpeater to get any amount of screentime. In the live-action film, his scene is given to the Fleshlumpeater.

** A similar concept previously appeared in one of Creator/RoaldDahl's short stories for adults, "The Sound Machine", in which the titular machine reveals to its inventor that plants make ''some'' kind of noise when they're cut, plucked, etc. Whether it's an expression of pain or not is unknown, but it's enough to severely unnerve the inventor.

** Then, again giants are always male. Giantess is the term for a female giant.

Added DiffLines:

* TheEighties: Spielberg's adaptation places the film explicitly in the 1980s, as the Queen contacts Nancy Reagan via phone and asks if "Ronnie" is in.

Added DiffLines:

* NonIndicativeName: The one good giant calls himself the "Big Friendly Giant" even though he's by far the ''smallest'' of the giants (although at least the "Friendly" part is beyond question). Admittedly, calling himself "The SFG" probably wouldn't have sounded as good.

* HollywoodAtlas: Lets see... the Queen of England runs everything and can overturn any decisions that her military commanders tries to make... Sweden is such a small community that everyone notices if three of them suddenly disappear... and Baghdad is run by a Caliph.
