In this blog article, the author talks about the release date for Matilda The Musical Movie, some cast updates, and other miscellaneous new information. I’ve included a few excerpts from the article below:
Matilda, by Roald Dahl The Musical, which was a hit on both West End and Broadway, has been made into a movie that will be shown in theatres and then come out on Netflix.
The hit stage musical “Matilda,” which is based on Roald Dahl’s best-selling children’s book “Matilda” and has music by comedian Tim Minchin, is being brought to life by a talented cast. Emma Thompson, who plays the horrible headmistress Miss Trunchbull, is one of the standouts.
Fans of both the book by Roald Dahl and the musical will love this new version. Alisha Weir plays Matilda, a very smart girl with special abilities, and Stephen Graham and Andrea Riseborough play her horrible parents. Lashana Lynch, who was in the movie “No Time to Die,” plays Miss Honey, Matilda’s kind and inspiring teacher.
The Tony Award-winning director of Matilda the Musical, Matthew Warchus, is in charge of the movie. Jon Finn (Billy Elliot) and Luke Kelly of The Roald Dahl Story Company are the producers. The Royal Shakespeare Company production is adapted for the big screen by screenwriter Dennis Kelly. Original music and lyrics are written by Tim Minchin.

Plot Of Matilda The Musical
The plot of Matilda by Roald Dahl Matilda Wormwood, played by Alisha Weir, is the main character in the musical. She is a young genius who loves to read. She is the long-suffering child of Stephen Graham and Andrea Riseborough, who play the worst parents in the world. They have given up on being parents to focus on trashy TV and shady ways to make money.
Matilda is determined that they should pay for being selfish, so she comes up with small ways to rebel and gets back at them. When she starts school at Crunchem Hall, she also has to deal with the scary bully headmistress, Miss Trunchbull.
But Matilda finds out she has special superpowers with the help of her kind teacher Miss Honey (Lashana Lynch). She is finally unstoppable, and she wants to stand up for justice and teach Miss Trunchbull (Emma Thompson) a lesson she won’t forget.
Along with the kind Miss Honey, Mrs. Phelps (Sindhu Vee), the librarian, and Matilda’s new school friends are bright spots in a world full of mean people. Matilda is so sure that she is right that she is willing to stand up for what is right and teach Trunchbull a lesson she will never forget.
