Buckle up for a thrilling adventure because we’re heading to Twitlandia.

In 2025, Netflix will release the animated film The Twits — written, directed and produced by Academy Award nominee Phil Johnston (Ralph Breaks the Internet) and animated by Jellyfish Pictures (The Boss Baby, The Bad Guys). Rounding out the filmmaking team are co-directors Katie Shanahan and Todd Demong; producer Maggie Malone; co-producer Daisy West; and writer Meg Favreau. The Twits marks the first screen adaptation based on the Roald Dahl book of the same name, which has been translated into 41 languages and sold 16 million copies worldwide.

The story of the film follows Mr. and Mrs. Twit — who are the miserable owners of a dangerous amusement park — and their meteoric rise to power in their town. The Twits’ takeover leads to an ongoing conflict between them, two children, and a community of magical animals who are determined to stop them. 

Johnston was excited to take on the project, as The Twits was his favorite book growing up. “I’ve always been attracted to reprehensible characters. I don’t know what this says about me, and I really don’t want to look into it,” he told Netflix earlier this year. “I love the Twits and their terrible tricks. I love that they lack self-awareness and personal hygiene and any inkling of human decency. And I love this movie because it reminds us that twits like the Twits, whose default emotions are anger and vengeance, can’t be allowed to win in our world.”

Whether you’re already a fan of The Twits or discovering a new soon-to-be obsession, here’s everything you need to know about upcoming film.

What is The Twits about?

Mr. and Mrs. Twit are the meanest, smelliest, nastiest people in the world who also happen to own and operate the most disgusting, most dangerous, most idiotic amusement park in the world, Twitlandia. But when the Twits rise to power in their town, two brave orphans and a family of magical animals are forced to become as tricky as the Twits in order to save the city. A hysterically funny, wild ride of a film (chock-full of the Twits’ beloved tricks — from the Wormy Spaghetti to the Dreaded Shrinks), The Twits is also a story for our times about the never-ending battle between cruelty and empathy.

Who is in the cast of The Twits?

The voice cast is set to feature Margo Martindale, Johnny Vegas, Natalie Portman and Emilia Clarke.

When will The Twits be on Netflix?

The Twits will be available to stream on Netflix in 2025. It’s the first animated release in an exciting lineup of Roald Dahl projects coming soon to Netflix, including an animated series based on the world of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
