Roald Dahl could do it all. Across his decades-long career, the novelist wrote some of the most memorable children's books ever. For instance, 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' and 'James and the Giant Peach' are some of Dahl's greatest works. However, it didn't stop there. The writer also published lurid adult novels, grizzly poetry, and even scripted a James Bond film.

With more of his projects set to hit our screens, including origin story 'Wonka,' starring Timothée Chalamet as Willy Wonka, and sequel 'Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator,' with Taika Waititi directing, we're sure to get our dose of Roald Dahl for years to come.

To look back on the on-screen adaptations of his work that have charmed us so far, and what we still haven't seen come to life, click through this gallery.
