The detection of giant exoplanets together with measurements of the Solar-System’s gas giants, offer a unique opportunity to improve our understanding of giant planet formation, evolution, and internal structure. I will discuss the leading giant planet formation models, summarize our current knowledge of the interiors of Jupiter and Saturn, and present the expected data from space missions and their link to giant planet theory.
