James and the Giant Peach is an adaptation of Roald Dahl's children's novel of the same name, released in US theaters by Walt Disney Pictures on April 12, 1996.  Starting in live-action, it involves orphan James' (Paul Terry) travels in an elephantine peach that grows off a tree in his abusive aunts' yard, venturing with equally freakishly large stop-motion insects.

At the climax, the insects are hungry when James remembers that "Our whole ship is made of food."  After the ensuing musical number, the insects appear very stuffed (though James himself looks as he was).
