‘Matilda the Musical’ Film Soundtrack is Now Online
A little more than a month before Matilda the Musical drops on Netflix, the company has released its official soundtrack digitally.
A new finale song entitled “Still Holding My Hand”, written specifically for the film adaptation, has been added to the repertoire. A total of 22 tracks, with 12 vocal songs by Tim Minchin and 10 instrumental score pieces by Christopher Nightingale (who also served as music supervisor and orchestrator in the original stage production), are included in the album.
Matilda the Musical, the film adaptation of the stage musical based on the 1988 Roald Dahl novel, is set to drop on Netflix on Christmas day, December 25, 2022. It follows the story of Matilda, 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.
The film stars Alisha Weir as Matilda, Emma Thompson as Miss Trunchbull, Lashana Lynch as Miss Honey, Stephen Graham as Mr. Wormwood, Andrea Riseborough as Mrs. Wormwood, and Sindhu Vee as Mrs. Phelps.
