Revolting news! Netflix has announced the date you’ve all been waiting for: Matilda the Musical will be on Netflix UK and Ireland from 25th June.

The film took the world by storm in December, when Alisha’s Weir’s Matilda and her Crunchem Hall classmates sang and danced their way into our hearts.

If you didn’t manage to catch it in cinemas at Christmas, you can now look forward to summertime streaming of the film that has become beloved in households all over the world.

It’s the perfect escape

Matilda Wormwood is a little girl with big curiosity, a sharp mind and a vivid imagination. Whether you’re a tiny child or an all-powerful grown up, you can’t help but delight in the mischievous, rebellious and utterly joyous story of Matilda as she takes on the terrible Trunchbull and shows us that even if you’re little, you can do a lot.

The music will not disappoint

Originally an internationally loved musical, the film is packed full of toe tapping, hell-raising songs. The most popular track, “Revolting Children”, has over 8 million plays on Spotify, with “Naughty” and “School Song” both raking in over 5 million each. You might even recognise “Revolting Children” from the viral TikTok trend, where fans worldwide recreated the wickedly fast dance in the style of “Red Beret Girl”.

It’s already racked up a lot of praise

Matilda the Musical was nominated for two BAFTA awards, including Outstanding British Film of the Year. Alisha Weir’s spirited portrayal of the titular character gained her a nomination for Young British/Irish Performer of the Year at the London Critics Circle Film Awards, with Emma Thompson also nominated for British/Irish Actress of the Year for her terrifying Miss Trunchbull.

You don’t want to be left out!

Millions of people around the world have already seen the film - in fact, Matilda remained at the top of the box office in UK cinemas for three consecutive weeks. Internationally, it was the second most watched film on Netflix this Christmas after Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, and boasted the number one spot for family film views.
