Over the next few weeks, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Taika Waititi will be reading James and the Giant Peach in full, across 10 episodes - and he'll be joined by some rather famous faces along the way.
The collaboration between Roald Dahl, Taika Waititi and the star-studded line-up of guests is part of our commitment to giving £1 million to COVID-19 impacted charities, including Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity, which provides specialist nurses to seriously ill children in the UK - and Partners In Health, a global health non-profit, who are operating at the front line in the battle against COVID-19 in some of the most vulnerable parts of the world.
The first eight episodes are available now at youtube.com/roalddahl, with new episodes available every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 6pm BST.
