Dir. Henry Selick. 1996, 79 mins. With Joanna Lumley, Paul Terry, Jane Leeves, Simon Callow, David Thewlis, Susan Sarandon, Pete Postlethwaite, Miriam Margolyes, Steven Culp, Richard Dreyfuss. Following their triumphant collaboration on The Nightmare Before Christmas, producer Tim Burton and director Selick employ both live action and stop-motion animation to realize Roald Dahl’s wondrous tale about a young orphan (Terry) who grows a magical, colossal iteration of the fuzzy fruit. In defiance of his two evil aunts hellbent on making money off of the miraculous crop, James and an assortment of colorful insect friends escape and set sail for New York City.
