In both the book and movie, several songs are sung, though only two of the books songs make it (in part) to the movie. The first is the self-glorifying song sung by Spiker and Sponge towards the very beginning; they speak rather than sing the first verse of it in the movie. The second one is Eating the Peach, which in the book was sung by the Centipede alone but in the movie is sung by all the bugs and James instead of just the Centipede. The rest of the songs in the movie are original to the movie.

August 2, 1996 (United Kingdom)Running time76 minutesLanguageEnglishBudget$38 millionGross revenue$28,946,127 (North America)SourceJames and the Giant Peachis a1996live-action/stop-motion film. It was based on the classic childrens novel byRoald Dahl(who also wroteCharlie and the Chocolate Factory). It tells the story ofJames Henry Trotter(Paul Terry), a young orphan forced to live with his cruel aunts (Joanna LumleyandMiriam Margolyes) after his parents are killed by a rhinoceros. James dreams of escaping toNew York City, a beautiful place that his parents told him about. One day a mysterious stranger gives James, a bag full of magic, which causes a peach to grow giant. James aunts think the peach will make them rich and get people to pay them to see it, but James sneaks inside the peach and finds a group of insects who have become human-like from the magic and together James and his new friends escape from James aunts and travel inside the peach to find a better life.Contents[show]Plot
The film begins with normal live-action for the first twenty minutes, but becomes stop-motion animation after James enters the peach, and then live-action when James enters New York City, New York (although the mutated insect characters remained in stop-motion). Selick had originally planned for James to be a real actor through the entire film, then later considered doing the whole film in stop-motion, but ultimately settled on doing entirely live-action and entirely stop-motion sequences due to costs. Unlike in the novel, James aunts are not killed by the rolling peach (although his parents deaths takes place as in the novel), and the film also has James dream of going to New York instead of simply winding up there.
In the book, the rhinoceros which killed Jamess parents was a normal rhino that had escaped from the zoo, and it never appears again. In the movie, the rhino is a supernatural creature of clouds, smoke and lightning that seems to be a personification of Jamess fears, and it haunts his thoughts and dreams throughout the movie until it shows up towards the end for a final confrontation with him.

In the book, Mrs. Ladybug is motherly to James, but in the movie, Ms. Spider is more motherly, although Mrs. Ladybug is still somewhat motherly.
Remembering his dream to visit New York City, James and the insects decide to go there. They use Miss Spiders silk to capture and tie a hundred seagulls to the peach stem, while battling against a giant robotic shark. They escape just in time. While flying, James and his friends eventually find themselves hungry and soon realize that their whole ship is made out of food. After gorging most of the inside of the peach, Miss Spider, while using her web to tuck in James, reveals to him that she was the spider he saved from Spiker and Sponge. James then has a nightmare of him as a caterpillar attacked by Spiker, Sponge, and the rhino. When he wakes up, he and his friends find themselves in The Arctic, lost and cold. Mr. Centipede has fallen asleep while keeping watch, resulting in them further away from their destination than ever. After hearing Mr. Grasshopper wishing they had a compass, Mr. Centipede jumps off the peach into the icy water below and searches a sunken ship. He finds a compass but is taken prisoner by a group of skeletal pirates. James and Miss Spider rescue him and the journey continues.

One peach is soon found on a withered old tree, and it grows to immense proportions. Spiker and Sponge use the giant peach as an attraction, making lots of money as James watches from the house, not allowed to leave. That night, James is sent to pick up the garbage. While doing so, he grabs a chunk of the peach to eat as one of the crocodile tongues jumps into it. A large hole appears inside the peach and James ventures inside and turns into a stop-motion animated character, where he finds and befriends a group of life-size anthropomorphic bugs who also dream of an ideal home (Mr. GrasshopperMr. CentipedeEarthwormMiss SpiderMrs. Ladybug, andGlowworm). As they hear the aunts search for James, Centipede manages to cut the stem holding the giant peach to the tree and the peach rolls away to the Atlantic Ocean with James and his friends inside it.

The book also does not mention the dream James had about his aunts and the rhino.
In the book, Aunt Spiker and Aunt Sponge are crushed to death by the peach when it rolls out of the yard. In the movie, they survive this and chase James all the way to New York City, New York (turning up in their half-flattened car, apparently after driving across the ocean floor), but James stands up to them and the bugs tie them up for the NYCPD to arrest them.

Although Dahl turned down more than one offer to make an animated film ofJames and the Giant Peachduring his lifetime, his widow, Liccy Dahl, consented to let this film be made. She said that, I think Roald would have been delighted with what they did with James.James and the Giant Peachreceived near-universal acclaim from film critics. Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reports that 93% of critics gave the film a positive review, based on 58 reviews. Owen Gleiberman ofEntertainment Weeklygave the film a positive review, praising the animated part, but calling the live-action segments crude. Writing in theNew York Times, Janet Maslin called the film a technological marvel, arch and innovative with a daringly offbeat visual conception and a strenuously artful film with a macabre edge.
In the book, the centipede becomes the owner of a shoe factory at the end of the story; in the movie, he runs for mayor. The endings for Miss Spider and Mrs. Ladybug likewise differ from book to movie — Miss Spider starts a factory that produces nylon ropes for tightrope walkers in the book, while in the movie she opens a saucy nightclub in New York. Mrs. Ladybug marries the head of the New York Fire Department in the book, while in the movie she becomes a highly respected obstetrician.
