Academy Award-winning filmmaker Taika Waititi is blessing us with his presence this quarantine in the form of his reading series. With the help of his friends (that you may just be familiar with, hint hint), he reads Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach, made perfect with homemade sound effects and creative character voices.

This reading series is made in an effort to raise money for Partners in Health, a global health non-profit combatting COVID-19. Episodes appear on Roald Dahl HQ’s youtube page, and each episode has a sidebar for viewer contributions. Even greater, all donations made will be matched!
While we spend time at home, it is important for us to remember that we each play a crucial part in this unified fight. What’s better than listening to our favorite celebrities read a childhood classic while donating to an important effort? Thanks, Taika and friends!
