The much-awaited film adaptation of Matilda the musical released a trailer online.

Adapted from the 1988 Roald Dahl novel, the story is about a precocious little girl who loves learning but who is ignored and oppressed by her ignorant, overbearing parents and by her school’s tyrannical headmistress, Miss Trunchbull.

In spite of these hardships, she finds solace in books and in the love of her kindhearted teacher, Miss Honey. She later finds the strength to challenge the unjust system in her school and she emerges triumphant.

The film stars Emma Thompson as Miss Trunchbull, Lashana Lynch as Miss Honey, Alisha Weir as Matilda, Stephen Graham as Mr. Wormwood, Andrea Riseborough as Mrs. Wormwood, and Sindhu Vee as Mrs. Phelps.

The stage adaptation is written by Dennis Kelly and Tim Minchin and directed by Matthew Warchus. The upcoming film will also be written by Dennis Kelly, directed by Matthew Warchus, and will feature the original music and lyrics by Tim Minchin.

Matilda the Musical was last seen in the Philippines in 2020 at The Theatre at Solaire and the Philippine staging starring Felicity Kyle Napuli, Esang De Torres, and Uma Martin alternating for the titular role at the Meralco Theater in 2017.

Streaming this December.
