Matilda 2 Release Date: Matilda the Musical is based on Tim Minchin’s 2011 stage show, which was based on Roald Dahl’s famous 1988 book. If you didn’t find out about the story there, you probably did in Danny DeVito’s masterpiece from 1996.

Our review said that the Netflix movie was “loud, bright, and garish, and kids are going to love it as long as they can handle the darker parts of the story.” People may wonder if there will be a Matilda 2 when the music comes out on streaming service this Christmas.

When Will Matilda 2 Come Out On Netflix?

While Netflix has not announced Matilda 2, a sequel to the musical is unlikely. Matilda the Musical has already danced into theatres in the UK and Ireland.

Fans outside of the UK who want to watch the movie from the comfort of their homes will be happy to hear that on December 25, 2022, Netflix will start streaming the film worldwide.

But it won’t be simultaneously available on Netflix in the UK and Ireland. For now, the only way to watch it in these places is in a movie theatre. We don’t know precisely when Matilda will be on UK Netflix, but Sony has confirmed it will be there in the summer of 2023.

What Is The Plot Of Matilda?

When the movie was first shown, the plot was also revealed: Matilda is a five-and-a-half-year-old girl who is intelligent and gifted and has to deal with her family’s stupidity. Matilda makes friends with the beautiful Miss Honey at school and can finally show how smart she is.

Unfortunately, the school is run by the cruel Miss Trunchbull, proud of punishing the students harshly. When Matilda gets telekinetic powers, she asks Miss Honey for help, and the two of them work together to stop Miss Trunchbull.

Who Is In The Matilda: The Musical Cast?

In the past, the lousy headmistress of Crunchem Hall Primary School, Miss Trunchbull, was usually played by a man in a production of Matilda.

However, Ralph Fiennes won’t be in the movie version of the book because Emma Thompson has been cast instead of him. Ralph Fiennes stepped down from the role, but no one has said why. We’re sure he would have made a funny Miss Trunchbull, though.

  • Emma Thompson as Miss Trunchbull
  • Andrea Riseborough as Mrs Wormwood
  • Stephen Graham as Mr Wormwood
  • Lashana Lynch as Miss Honey
  • Alisha Weir as Matilda Wormwood
  • Sindhu Vee as Mrs Phelps

Is The Matilda Film Based On The Musical?

Because the musical did not premiere until 2010, the earlier Matilda film, produced in 1996, was an adaptation of the novel. This film is based on the successful musical directed by Matthew Warchus, who also helmed the show’s West End and Broadway versions.

Dennis Kelly, who also created the script for the musical, is making the screenplay for the film. Kelly is best recognized for his theatre and television work, but he has one previous film credit for scripting the Jude Law thriller Black Sea.
