A universe centered around this beloved children’s book author is coming to Netflix
Netflix and the Roald dahl Story Company has been developing projects based on Dahl’s work since 2018, but by Variety, the streaming giant has just acquired the latter company – and is about to embark on the works of the beloved author. This, of course, is huge news. After all, Dahl’s work includes some of the most beloved stories of all time, including “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, “James and the Giant Peach”, “The Witches”, “Matilda”, “Fantastic Mr. Fox” , “The BFG”, and many others.
Apparently, the streaming company’s budget for Dahl’s upcoming works is hovering around $ 1 billion, and outside of the live action and animated works, you can expect them to experiment a bit. nearly any media you can shake a stick on, including, but not limited to, theater and games. There are already 19 different projects in various stages of planning, including an animated project “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” with Taika Waititi. Considering the scale of the project, it certainly looks like there will be many more on the horizon very soon.
Although it now flies the Netflix flag, the Roald Dahl Story Company will continue in its current structure and some of the purchase money will be used for charitable purposes. As such, you can expect this adaptation of “The Enormous Crocodile” with a clear conscience.
