The two half-hour animated films films will be produced by Magic Light Pictures (The Gruffalo, Room On The Broom) and air on BBC One as part of Roald Dahl’s centenary year in 2016.

Producer Martin Pope says: “We’re delighted to be bringing Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes to BBC One. Dahl is one the world’s favourite storytellers and Quentin Blake’s drawings are inspirational. We look forward to bringing these films to a BBC1 audience.”
