Trivia / James and the Giant Peach

  • Acclaimed Flop: Critics and audiences liked it (and still do) pretty well, but it failed to repeat the success of Disney's previous stop motion feature and they haven't made another one since.
  • Actor Allusion: This isn't the first time Richard Dryfuss played a charcter [[Film/Jaws that had a face to face encounter with a shark that ended up blowing up]]
  • Acting for Two: In addition to playing Aunt Sponge, Miriam Margolyes also voices the Glowworm.
  • Cult Classic: The film has firmly cemented itself as such over the years, especially among those to have grown up in The '90s.
  • Non-Singing Voice: Jeff Bennett provides the singing for the Centipede.
  • What Could Have Been: Aside from the peach being a cherry in the original manuscript of the book, there was a deleted scene supposed to play after the credits in the film that revealed what happened to Spiker and Sponge: still wrapped up in their silk cacoon, they were put on display in the Central Park Zoo labeled as unknown species, and are shown bickering and demanding a separate cage.
