‘The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar’ Trailer features Benedict Cumberbatch telling us a story

Wes Anderson is back with his first of four short film adaptations of Roald Dahl classics starting with 'The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar'.

Netflix has just released a trailer for the upcoming short film series by Director Wes Anderson starting with The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar. We see Benedict Cumberbatch who plays the role of Henry Sugar narrating his own story of an unmarried 41-year old who is comes across a book about a man who can see without his eyes. He then sets out to master this skill and use it to cheat and make money gambling. The trailer has the characteristic Wes Anderson style and I think it will be a fun watch. Also, starring in this film are Ben Kingsley as the man who can see without his eyes, Ralph Fiennes as Roald Dahl, Dev Patel and Richard Ayoade.

This is the second time Anderson has brought a Dahl story to the screen, the first being 2009’s Fantastic Mr. Fox. This is also the first time Benedict Cumberbatch has been part of a Wes Anderson film. The film releases directly on Netflix on 27th September 2023.
