Led by Jojo Rabbit and Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi, a star-studded read-along of James and the Giant Peach will raise money for Partners in Health, an organization dedicated to supporting public health care systems all over the world.

This 10 episode read along includes huge stars like Ryan Reynolds, Benedict Cumberbatch, Meryl Streep, and more lending their voice and talent to this wonderful bit of escapism for kids. "Being an adult child myself and having read James and the Giant Peach to my girls multiple times, I'm excited to be able to partner with my friends, the Dahl team and Partners in Health and retell this story to help those most in need right now," said Waititi. "This wacky, wonderful tale is about resilience in children, triumph over adversity, and dealing with a sense of isolation, which couldn't be more relevant today."

A new episode will be posted on the Roald Dahl Youtube channel every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and don't forget to hit the donate button!
