Steven Spielberg backed World Book Day which took place on the 3rd of March by emphasizing how powerful the written word is. Spielberg's next film is The BFG, a version of the Roald Dahl popular children's book.
He said: "Do you remember the first book you ever read, books have a power unlike anything else.
"You can be transported to any place, any time, anywhere."
The BFG film which the director adapted for the big screen will be in cinemas on July 22.
