“As a tribute to the cranky genius of Dahl, it's both fond and, in the best sense, fruitful.”
Based on the marvellously inventive children's fantasy by Roald Dahl, James and the Giant Peach combines live action with stop-motion animation.
After discovering a giant fruit at the bottom of his garden, James crawls inside and meets some very peculiar insects. Together they embark on a fantastical quest to find their dreams in New York City.
The cast includes Joanna Lumley and Pete Postlethwaite, with voices by Simon Callow, Richard Dreyfuss and Susan Sarandon.
