James’ happy life at the English seaside is rudely ended when his parents are killed by a rhinoceros and he goes to live with his two horrid aunts. Daringly saving the life of a spider he comes into possession of magic boiled crocodile tongues, after which an enormous peach starts to grow in the garden. Venturing inside the peach he meets not only the spider but a number of new friends including a ladybug and a centipede who help him with his plan to get to New York.

A charming and beautiful adaption of the Roald Dahl novel, this musical-fantasy, award-winning film is a loving tribute to his cranky genius.
