Synopsis

Young orphan James (whose parents were eaten by a rhinoceros) escapes from his hated aunts in a huge magic peach that is the home to a group of human-sized and eccentric creatures - including a centipede and a glow-worm. This extraordinary turn of events then inspires an even more remarkable adventure that takes the giant fruit on an epic trip across the Atlantic Ocean. The strange world of Roald Dahl's book is perfectly rendered using the painstaking craft of stop-motion animation.
