Musical fans are going to love this. Sony Pictures and Tristar Pictures have announced that the new adaptation of Matilda will be released across the UK and Ireland exclusively in cinemas on 2nd December 2022. Netflix will then distribute the film to the rest of the world in the same month.
Matilda is the film adaptation of the multi-award-winning and massively successful stage musical, inspired by the iconic Roald Dahl story. It tells the tale of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a sharp mind and a vivid imagination, dares to take a stand to change her story with miraculous results.
Say hello to the fabulous cast!
Newcomer Alisha Weir will play as Matilda alongside a stellar cast including BAFTA and Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson as Miss Trunchbull and Lashana Lynch as Miss Honey. Stephen Graham and Andrea Riseborough will play Matilda’s parents Mr. and Mrs. Wormwood, and Sindhu Vee joins the ensemble cast as librarian Mrs. Phelps. Tony® and Olivier Award winner Matthew Warchus, who directed Matilda The Musical for the West End and Broadway, will direct the film adaptation.
So, to recap. UK audiences will be able to watch the film in cinema from December 2nd of 2022. Matilda will then be accessible via Netflix for audiences outside of the UK shortly after- although a date has not yet been specified.
Honestly, this adaptation really escaped our radar. But what a cast. As huge musical lovers, we can’t wait to see how this film reinvents such a classic story. Are you excited to see Matilda on screen once again? Let us know in the comments. Obviously, the film is still quite far away so we’ll be sure to keep you posted on any future updates.
