Starting Monday, May 18, director Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok, Jojo Rabbit) is set to hold a star studded read-along to Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach. The read-along is in partnership with the Roald Dahl Story Company to raise money for Partners in Health, an organization that is tackling COVID-19 while also assisting public health systems in vulnerable areas worldwide that Dahl’s daughter, Ophelia, helped found.
