Gather around, children: The official trailer for Roald Dahl's Matilda the Musical has been released by Netflix. In this new iteration of the classic tale, actress Emma Thompson takes on the role of the sinister headmistress, Miss Trunchbull. (And her striking appearance made us do a double take.)
The two-minute teaser starts with Matilda (Alisha Weir) planning to escape her terrible home life. Then, we’re transported to the school grounds of Crunchem Hall, where her nice teacher, Miss Honey (Lashana Lynch), learns of the young girl’s special abilities. Cut to Miss Trunchbull taunting one of the students—and Matilda stands up to her.
“That’s not right!” she yells.
