Taika Waititi has roped in a bunch of celebrities to help him read Roald Dahl’s classic James and the Giant Peach.

Not that he needs any help reading, but because it’s a chance to get a group of people together – remotely, of course – to enjoy the wild writings of Dahl, and also possibly raise a bit of folding stuff for charity while they’re at it.

Some of the people joining Taika over ten episodes will be Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chris Hemsworth, Liam Hemsworth, Mindy Kaling, Lupita Nyong’o, Sarah Paulson, Ryan Reynolds and Meryl Streep.

So, just your typical bunch of C-listers…

Here’s a trailer for it, and you can check out episodes as they pop up here.
