10. "The BFG" starring Sir Ian McKellen
Ian's resemblance to the Big Friendly Giant from the Roald Dahl classic is undeniable and who could play the gentle grandfather-like giant better? This story has only been brought to life through animation, but with the advances of CGI, surely this could be done live action. And throwing a knighted actor into the mix could really class up the genre.
