What a cool concept.
If you are a huge fan of legendary author Roald Dahl, then you’re in for a treat, because Oscar Winning New Zealand director Taika Waititi is leading a reading of the classic Roald Dahl novel James and the Giant Peach, with a little help from his Hollywood friends to raise money for charity.
We've teamed up with @taikawaititi to present James and the Giant Peach, with Taika and Friends!— Roald Dahl HQ ✏️ (@roald_dahl) May 18, 2020
Taika will be reading the whole book to raise money for @PIH - and we'll match all donations made.
