Take a bite out of Disney's delicious Special Edition of JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH and celebrate the 40th anniversary of the popular children's book by Roald Dahl that inspired this imaginative film. This amazing mix of live-action, stop-motion animation and computer-generated special effects includes bonus materials never before available. When young James spills some magic crocodile tongues, a giant peach grows as huge as a house. Climbing inside, he embarks on a thrilling and magical odyssey that only the creative team from TIM BURTON'S THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS could bring you. Along the way you'll discover the famous star voices of Richard Dreyfuss and Susan Sarandon, Jane Leeves (FRASIER), and Simon Callow (SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE), plus the inspired music of Randy Newman. Enjoy -- it's a peach of a journey!
While The Nightmare Before Christmas, from the same filmmaking team, received an exhaustive special edition DVD, James and the Giant Peach gets shortchanged. There are only a couple dozen character drawings (compared to over 450 for Nightmare), a music video, and a publicity-fluff featurette. Better is the excellent transfer that makes the images pop off the screen. Best of all, James continues the welcome trend of putting both DTS and Dolby Digital soundtracks on the same disc. --Doug Thomas
The movie itself has a sub-par storyline, the song lyrics are very poor, and I will probably not watch the movie myself again.Published 2 days ago by Chase G Hall

James goes through a lot but he is good and courageous and his insect friends give him hope.
Sweet ending as well
