The world of Roald Dahl is the theme for this year's Late Late Toy Show.
Matilda and Willy Wonka's Oompa Loompas will feature on the show this Friday night.
While host Ryan Tubridy will open the programme as Fantastic Mr Fox.
"This has been a year like no other, and therefore requires an opening like no other. The Wonderful World of Roald Dahl is one that understands children in a way that no one else ever has," said Ryan Tubridy.
"He knew that there could be a sadness to the world at times, but that there's also great love and mischief and fun to be found. All of those factors have been combined to bring what we hope is a joyful, beautiful, and wonderful opening like no other to this year's Late Late Toy Show.
"This is the dream theme for a bookish person like me, I've been talking about my love of reading since I was a little boy.
"I love Fantastic Mr Fox and I'm rather enjoying being a fox for this opening because it's so different from what has gone before. What we have in store really captures The Wonderful World of Roald Dahl... everybody is welcome, it's going to be a night of nights in a year of years."
This year there will be a new international element to the show with children from around the world taking part virtually.
