James and the Giant Pumpkin?


James and the Giant PeachI found James and the Giant Peach one of the best live-action animation marriages of the 20th century.

If you missed it, its stop-motion-like production gave it a dreamy feel kinda like Wallace and Gromit did when you first laid eyes on ‘em.

The movie starts out in real-life like Roger Rabbit and Cool World dared to do way back in the 1980’s and early 90’s.

James escapes his evil step-mothers by hitching a ride on a magical peach, across the ocean to New York city.

That’s when the adventure turns a little creepy, but in a good Nightmare before Christmas kinda way.

The story inspired me to write a similar tale of whimsy about another young boy who was estranged from his father.

But instead of a peach, their relationship rested on the maiden voyage of a magical pumpkin, through the vacuum of space.
