Netflix is bringing Roald Dahl’s beloved characters, Mr. and Mrs. Twit, to life in an animated feature set to premiere in 2025. Led by a star-studded voice cast including Margo Martindale, Natalie Portman, Emilia Clarke, and Johnny Vegas, “The Twits” promises to deliver a delightful and mischievous adventure for audiences of all ages.

The story follows the titular characters, Mr. and Mrs. Twit, who is known as the meanest, smelliest, and nastiest people in the world.

Not only do they possess these undesirable qualities, but they also run the most disgusting and dangerous amusement park, Twitlandia. However, when the Twits seize control of their town, it’s up to two brave orphans and a family of magical animals to outwit them and save the city.

Phil Johnston, known for his Academy Award-nominated work on “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” helms the animated feature, which is adapted from Dahl’s 1980 novel.

Johnston expresses his affinity for reprehensible characters like the Twits, highlighting their lack of self-awareness, personal hygiene, and human decency. He emphasizes the importance of stories like “The Twits” in reminding audiences that characters driven by anger and vengeance cannot prevail in our world.

“The Twits” marks Netflix’s latest venture into Dahl adaptations, following collaborations with Wes Anderson on short films based on Dahl’s works and the acquisition of the Roald Dahl Story Company in 2021.

As fans eagerly await its premiere, they can look forward to a fresh take on Dahl’s literary excellence and the misadventures of the infamous Mr. and Mrs. Twit.
