Taika Waititi and Friends Read Roald Dahl for Charity

A glittering roster of Hollywood A-listers, including Meryl Streep and Benedict Cumberbatch, have come together remotely to read, over 10 episodes, the whole of James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl. Produced by Dahl’s grandson Luke Kelly, and hosted by Oscar-winning actor/writer/director Taika Waititi, the epic fun-filled reading has been put together to raise money for Partners in Health.
