Netflix has signed a deal with the heirs of successful children’s author Roald Dahl, of whom more than 200 million books work sold. The U.s. streaming site is going to animation sequences making up stories like “Sjakie and the chocolate factory”, “Matilda” and “The GVR”.
The stories of Dahl, who died in 1990, in the course of the years, often filmed. Netflix has now bought the rights to “fresh and contemporary” animation sequences, reports the company. In the contract are sixteen titles. The production of the first series starts next year.
