About the movie

Featuring stop-motion animation and live action, this inventive adaptation of Roald Dahl's beloved tale follows the adventures of orphaned James (Paul Terry) who is forced to live with his cruel aunts Spiker and Sponge (Joanna Lumley, Miriam Margolyes). He manages to escape from his bleak existence with the help of an enormous enchanted peach which starts to grow in the aunts’ garden. After rolling into the sea inside the buoyant fruit, James, accompanied by a crew of friendly talking insects, sets sail for New York City.
