New Animated Film The Twits is the first adaptation based on the Iconic Roald Dahl Book and is Directed by Academy Award® Nominee Phil Johnston. Roald Dahl’s “The Twits” has been translated into 41 languages and sold 16 million copies worldwide.

The Twits will be Netflix’s first animated release in an exciting line-up of adaptations of iconic Roald Dahl stories, including Wes Anderson’s upcoming live action short film The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar, as well as an animated Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Netflix acquired the Roald Dahl Story Company in September 2021.

Synopsis: Mr. and Mrs. Twit are the meanest, smelliest, nastiest people in the world who also happen to own and operate the most disgusting, most dangerous, most idiotic amusement park in the world, Twitlandia. But when the Twits rise to power in their town, two brave orphans and a family of magical animals are forced to become as tricky as the Twits in order to save the city. A hysterically funny, wild ride of a film (chock-full of the Twits’ beloved tricks–from the Wormy Spaghetti to the Dreaded Shrinks), The Twits is also a story for our times, about the never-ending battle between cruelty and empathy.
