Roald Dahl Is King Of The Children's Story.
1 January 2018 | by stephenabellSee all my reviews

These half hour animated films are beautiful crafted as you can see elements of Quentin Blake's illustrations. There was never going to be anyway to create them perfectly and still make them soft enough to be lovable. I believe the animators struck the right balance. As for the vocal talents, well I have to say that this has the best cast I've ever heard. The voice of the big bad wolf not only holds menace and threat but also humour and affection.

I would recommend everybody to check these short animations out - they are beautiful, scary, and funny - absolutely awesome.
