When James Henry Trotter was four years old, his parents were gobbled up by a rhinoceros not far from their seaside home, and he has since been forced to live with his horrid aunts, Spiker Trotter and Sponge Trotter , who treat him like a slave, keep him in the attic and only feed him fish heads. One afternoon when he is crying in the woods James stumbles across a friendly wizard, who mysteriously understands his plight and gives him some magic crystals that he promises will bring happiness. However, on the way back to the house, James spills it onto a peach, which subsequently grows to an abnormal size. His evil aunts find the giant peach and decide to invite the media to take photos in return for money.

From the old tree a single peach grows, and grows, and grows some more, until finally James climbs inside the giant fruit and rolls away from his despicable aunts to a whole new life….
