The Rhino is the climax's secondary antagonist of Disney's 1996 film, James and the Giant Peach. Its vocal effects are provided by Frank Welker.

Background

Physical Description

The rhino is a giant black cloud that is shaped like a rhino with yellow eyes.

Powers and Abilities

  • The rhino is made of clouds, so it probably can't be harmed.
  • The rhino seems to have the ability to control the weather, because when it is seen, a strong wind comes and a storm cloud appears; and when it arrives, lightning appears afterwards followed by thunder.
  • The rhino also uses fear as a weapon; the more a person fears it, the stronger it gets. In fact, it represents James' fear.

Biography

In the book

In the book, the rhino is a normal rhinoceros that escaped from the London Zoo.

In James and the Giant Peach

In the film, the rhino came out of nowhere and gobbled up James' parents, forcing James to live with Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker.

Spiker and Sponge used the rhino to scare James. It is unknown whether it was once a real rhinoceros when it killed James' parents or if it is just a spirit haunting James (more likely the second one since rhinoceroses are herbivores and do not eat meat).

When James and his insect friends finally reach New York, the rhino appears and tries to slow down their progress. Slowly, it approaches the giant peach, using the power of fear. When James manages to muster up the courage to say he isn't afraid of the rhino, it ultimately dissolved, but not before shooting a final bolt of lightning at the giant peach.
