Do you recall how the world looked to you as a child? Everything was huge. Buildings, furniture, and grown-ups -- they all dwarfed you, some of them so large as to seem monstrous. If a thing delighted you, it was a wonder; if it frightened you, it was a terror-this spirit animates this animated version of Roald Dahl's story "James and the Giant Peach." James' parents have died, and now he toils for his cruel aunts, Spiker and Sponge. One day, an old man arrives and gives him bag of glowing green 'crocodile tongues.' James accidentally drops these, whereupon they cause a tree to sprout a giant-size peach. Soon enough, James finds himself magically inside the Peach, where insects have taken up residence. One day the Peach rolls away with James inside, and the adventure begins.
