Best Roald Dahl Movies


The Top Ten

1 Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory

No no no this was just a musical.
The remake followed the book.

The original Willy Wonka is the superior of the 2. Gene Wilder WAS Willy Wonka and you got more of a happy feeling watching it.

2 Matilda

Yes assess assesses assessed! Must watch

Please put this at number one

Sorry google corrected me but in an inappropriate way. Anyway, I love this movie. How embarrassing! 😭

3 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Make it one please

4 Fantastic Mr. Fox

Epic - TeamRocket747

5 The BFG (2016)

Worst remake except. for that willy wonka Tom and jerry

bad - robertoiglesias271

NO WAY! The BFG was awesome! It even had Queen Elizabeth in it! My vote:πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜πŸ˜†πŸ˜œ

I loved the movie. Matilda should be 1st place. This movie should be second!

6 James and the Giant Peach
7 The Witches

Most underrated Roald Dahl film ever. It was really cool by the standards of the decade it came out in.

This was scary

Why Is it not in the top 5! my best roald dahl movies are. 1.charlie and the chocolate factory. 2.the witches. 3.james and the giantπŸ‘

8 Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

A good musical for all of the famliy

9 The BFG

I never grew up with the animated movie but I just watched the Steven Speilberg version and it looks great. I always grew up with some Roal Dahl films like Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and Matilda.

This should be in the top 5. Very scary - lizard302

10 Danny the Champion of the World

The Contenders

11 Esio Trot

This film isn't good at all. Make it 12

12 You Only Live Twice (1967)

Hold up! Roal Dahl wrote the screenplay for a James Bond movie? Enough said.

Dahl wrote the screenplay for the fifth James Bond movie and changed a lot from the novel.
