From the same team that brought you Nightmare Before Christmas comes this imaginative mixture of dazzling and inventive stop-motion animation and live-action. This charming adaptation of Roald Dahl’s beloved children’s book follows the adventures of James (Paul Terry), a young British orphan. Forced to move in with his cruel aunts (Joanna Lumley, Miriam Margolyes), James finds a way out of his bleak existence when he accidentally conjures an enormous enchanted peach. After rolling into the sea inside the buoyant fruit, James, accompanied by a crew of friendly talking insects, sets sail for New York City.
