Description

Adventures this big don't grow on trees.

This is the story of James Henry Trotter, a lonely orphan sent to live with his horribly wicked and greedy Aunts Spiker and Sponge.

When James meets a strange old man who promises that marvellous things will happen, indeed they do. Escaping his aunts by climbing inside a giant peach that mysteriously and suddenly grows on their barren tree, he meets some very unusual new friends and as they break free in the peach from Spiker and Sponge, they embark on a series of wildly imaginative adventures

Review

"Roald Dahl's modern classic for children becomes a delightful combination of live action and stop-motion animation by the team that made The Nightmare Before Christmas: director Henry Selick and producers Tim Burton (Batman) and Denise Di Novi. The story concerns young James (played for real and through voice-overs by Paul Terry), who is orphaned and left in the charge of two cruel aunts (Miriam Margolyes, Joanna Lumley). Rescued by a mysterious fellow (Pete Postlethwaite), James ends up inside a giant peach, drifting over the Atlantic Ocean in the company of a gentleman grasshopper (voiced by Simon Callow), a fast-talking centipede (Richard Dreyfuss), an anxious earthworm (David Thewlis), a matronly ladybug (Jane Leeves), and a sexy spider (Susan Sarandon). The collection of actors and their creepy-crawly alter egos are a delight, especially when some of the song-and-dance numbers (tunes are written by Randy Newman) get everyone going." --Tom Keogh
