Inspired by the true story of when Roald Dahl met his hero Beatrix Potter at six-years-old, Roald & Beatrix promises to be a magical Christmas film combining live action filming with puppetry and stop-frame animation.

Dawn French (French and Saunders) will play the children’s author Beatrix Potter, who created beloved characters such as Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle-Duck.
