Product Summary

Box set containing three films based on books originally written by popular children's author, Roald Dahl. 'Danny Champion of the World' (1989) is set in the English countryside during the 1950s and tells the story of nine-year-old Danny (Samuel Irons) and his widower father William (Jeremy Irons), a poacher who lives in a caravan on a great estate. The lord of the manor wants to turn the land into a housing development, thus pushing William out, but Danny has other plans. As they battle to save their way of life and refuse to give way to the builders, a strong bond grows between father and son. In 'The Witches' (1990), Luke (Jason Fisher) and his wise Aunt Helga (Mai Zetterling) arrive at an English seaside hotel where the Royal Commission for Prevention of Cruelty to Children is holding a convention. Luke discovers that its members are not charity workers but wicked witches who plan to turn all children into mice - starting with him. The mouse-Luke must alert his aunt and stop their dastardly plan. In 'Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory' (1971) stars Peter Ostrum as young Charlie Bucket, a boy who wins one of the coveted 'GoldenTickets' from a Wonka Bar that allows its holder to take a trip around the eccentric Willy Wonka's (Gene Wilder) Chocolate Factory. Charlie and the rest of the winners find themselves in a magical world of chocolate rivers, Oompa Loompas, everlasting gobstoppers, lickable wall-paper, golden egg-laying geese and chilling tales to warn children not to misbehave. Roald Dahl wrote the screenplay from his own book.
