Your childhood favourites are about to forge a new home on Netflix and this is bringing nostalgia to a whole new level. To sum it up, Netflix and The Roald Dahl Story Company have decided to create a new collection of original animated series based on the iconic books, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The BFG and a whole heap more.
And will these originals stay true to the tone of Dahl? Netflix has given us a big, fat thumbs-up-hell-yeah it will. So far the animated series line-up consists of these bad boys:
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator
George’s Marvellous Medicine
Boy – Tales of Childhood
The Enormous Crocodile
The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me
Billy and the Minpins
The Magic Finger
The production date for these will commence in 2019 so for now, it looks like we all have a spot of kidult reading to catch up on. Head here for more details.
