Netflix will release the animated film The Twits, written and directed by Academy Award nominee Phil Johnston (Ralph Breaks the Internet), in 2025. The Twits marks the first screen adaptation based on the Roald Dahl book of the same name.
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.
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.
