Last year of Roald Dahl's life: Esio Trot published; The Witches film released
In May 1990, Nicolas Roeg's film adaptation of The Witches, starring Angelica Huston as The Grand High Witch and Rowan Atkinson as the Hotel Manager, is released. It is the last film adaptation of any of Roald Dahl's works to be worked before his death in November of that year.
Also in 1990, Esio Trot becomes the last Roald Dahl story to be published in his lifetime, and Roald's fifth grandchild, Chloe Faircloth, is born. Chloe is Lucy Dahl's second child.
