This Disney film combines live-action with stunning stop-motion animation, as it tells the story of a child's fantastic adventure. In the live-action prologue, a recently orphaned British boy named James comes to own a bag of glowing, magical crocodile tongues. When he drops some of them near a tree, a peach grows -- and grows, till it reaches gigantic proportions. One night, James crawls inside the fruit (at which point the film becomes animated) and meets the six fascinating insects that reside within. The bugs become his new family, and together they set sail in the giant peach, floating towards New York City. During their voyage, James and his antennaed friends experience wild adventures -- and danger. And when they arrive in New York, they decide to make it their new home... and live happily ever after.
