It is not yet known if the graphics of these cartoons will resume the lines of the superb work of Quentin Blake, but Melissa Cobb (vice-president of the section for children and families Netflix) has recently confided : “We want to make the movie in the own style of Dahl“. A hope ? We keep our fingers crossed.
In addition, after having promised to “remain faithful to the quintessence of the spirit and tone of Dahl’s“, Netflix has also stated in a press release that these animated series are not simple adaptations. On the contrary, the platform – in collaboration with The Roald Dahl Story Company, intends to “create a universe” which will expand the stories beyond what has already been told with few connections between each series. Promising.
