Chitty Chitty Bang Bang sequel on its way
The estate of Ian Fleming is to commission a follow-up to the author’s wonderful children’s tale, Chitty Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, reports The Guardian. Sadly, most people do not know Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a book by Fleming. They just think it’s a film starring several annoying children and faux Englishman Dick Van Dyke (although Lionel Jeffries is priceless, Benny Hill makes an appearance, Road Dahl co-wrote the script and the child catcher is genuinely scary.)
Now, I have read Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to my daughter and the book is quite different to the movie. We enjoyed the book very much. Let’s hope the sequel is just as good. I haven’t let my kids see the movie yet because of the child catcher and I greatly value my sleep at night.
