Charlie and the Chocolate factory, Matilda… Netflix is preparing a series of animation

The universe and magic of Roald Dahl is about to (re)come to life on our screens. Netflix just announced that the platform is going to produce animation series adapted from his most famous stories (Charlie and the Chocolate factory, Matilda…)

It is not yet Christmas, but Netflix already comes to us to offer the most beautiful gift possible. It is on Twitter that the platform has formalized the news, she will soon tackle the incredible, the wonderful, the fantastic world of Roald Dahl, the essential author’s youth, by creating a series of animated adaptations of his most famous stories such as Charlie and the Chocolate factory, Matilda, The bfg, or The Two Scoundrels. Only James and the Giant Peach and Fantastic Mr Fox are not part of the deal.

A faithful adaptation but unique

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.
