Netflix will develop a new Roald Dahl universe
TV Netflix Originals
Roald Dahl could do it all. Across his decades-long career, the novelist wrote some of the most memorable children's books ever. For instance, 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' and 'James and the Giant Peach' are some of Dahl's greatest works. However, it didn't stop there. The writer also published lurid adult novels, grizzly poetry, and even scripted a 'James Bond' film. Now, Netflix seems to be working on developing a Roald Dahl universe.
But the company has a lot to live up to, as Dahl's work has already proven itself on screen. Take a look at some of Roald Dahl's past adaptations in this gallery, as well as some of his works Netflix could debut.
