Roald Dhal Stories Coming To Netflix
Claire Miles - December 1, 2018

Roald Dahl is without a doubt one of the most iconic and influential storytellers of all time. His classic stories are completely timeless, and have been loved by children of all ages for decades already.

 

Whether you’re reading his books, or watching one of the movies based on the stories, you will always feel Dahl’s incredible talent to create magic through each and every one of his words.  All of his characters, whether from Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory were all completely legendary.

 

Although a reboot is not exactly the most original idea, since were living in a decade we’re it’s just got to happen, at least this time around it’s completely amazing. Neftlix has recently signed a deal that will enable them to create an animated series based on all of Dahl’s books, promising to remain faithful to the tone and spirit of Dahl’s work.

 

However, it is important to note that it won’t be a straight up copy of the books. They are instead, making a story universe, that will take the stories to a whole other level, and rumor has it that the stories might even overlap.

 

Dahl’s Widow, Felicity, who signed on the new project, says that she knows her late husband would have approved of the idea.
