James, orphaned after a rhinoceros kills his parents, has been sent to live with his two cruel aunts in this 20th anniversary film adaption of Roald Dahl’s acclaimed children’s novel. When a mysterious stranger gives James a bag full of crocodile tongues, their magic mysteriously causes a peach to grow to enormous proportions. When James ventures inside the Giant Peach, he befriends a spider, a ladybug, and a centipede, who help him try to get to New York. Selick uses both live action and stop-motion animation to bring the story to life.
