Netflix acquires Roald Dahl’s company to bring new films and shows to streaming service


Streaming giant Netflix has bought the Roald Dahl Story Company – a deal which includes the author's entire back catalogue that will bring films, shows and potentially games to the broadcaster.

The company will now control the rights to the author's entire literary works, and is eyeing the creation of a "unique universe" that involves "immersive experiences", "games" and "consumer products" – as well as films and TV shows.

Netflix already had an agreement in place from 2018 to create a number of television shows (such as another Charlie And The Chocolate Factory reboot with Taika Waititi) and produce the film version of Tim Minchin's Matilda The Musical.
