James and the Giant Peach (Two-Disc Special Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo) [Blu-ray]

Inspired by Roald Dahl’s beloved children’s book, this is the story of a young boy named James who gains possession of some magic crocodile tongues after the daring rescue of a spider. When James spills them in the garden, out sprouts an enormous peach!  Climbing inside, he meets an astonishing cast of characters and embarks on a magical odyssey full of thrills and adventure.

The mix of fantasy and adventure proved to be an irresistible lure to my kid and even I had fun watching it. Having not read the orginal story, I can't confirm how much of it was true to the book. But there's no denying the charm or the wonderful way this movie captures and captivates its audience.

Blu-ray Bonus Features include:
  • Spike the Aunts Interactive Game – New BD Exclusive! Inspired by the game that plays after the end movie credits, try your hand at spiking the evil aunts with the rhino and ring up major points!
  • Production Featurette – A look at the making of the film.
  • “Good News” Music Video performed by Randy Newman
  • Still Frame Gallery
  • Original Theatrical Trailer

Voiced by an all-star cast, including legendary actors Richard Dreyfuss, Susan Sarandon, Simon Callow and Jane Leeves, and featuring the celebrated music of Randy Newman, this classic story is delicious entertainment for the whole family!
