Emma Thompson Is Terrifying as Miss Trunchbull in the “Matilda the Musical” Trailer

1 Mins read

A new trailer for Netflix’s “Matilda the Musical” was released on June 15, and it features Emma Thompson giving an intimidating performance as the terrifying Miss Trunchbull.

The musical — and 1996 cult-classic film — is based on Roald Dahl’s story about the titular 5-year-old, who uses her powers of telekinesis to overcome bullies, including her parents and her school’s principal. The film will be helmed by Matthew Warchus, who also directed the stage musical. Original playwright Dennis Kelly will adapt the screenplay, with original music and lyrics by Tim Minchin. The film will get an exclusive theatrical release in the UK through Sony’s TriStar Pictures, with Netflix distributing it worldwide online.

Lashana Lynch, who played Nomi in “No Time To Die,” will play Ms. Honey. The beloved teacher, who is one of the few to encourage Matilda and her powerful gifts, was famously played by Embeth Davidtz in the feature film adaptation.

Lynch was the first cast member revealed for the film, followed by the confirmation on Jan. 15 that Thompson will play formidable headteacher Miss Trunchbull. Academy Award winner Ralph Fiennes was originally in talks for the part, as the character of Trunchbull is actually played by a man in the production of “Matilda the Musical”. However, Netflix’s movie musical landed on Thompson for the role. “We haven’t had to build the appearance of Trunchbull as a woman before!,” director Matthew Warchus told “The Daily Mail”.

Judging by the trailer, the adaption is poised to be as fabulously colorful as HBO Max’s rendition of Dahl’s “The Witches.” Ahead, check out “Matilda the Musical”‘s release date, cast, trailer, and more.
