Roald Dahl’s beloved Matilda, a tale about a curious girl with a non-stop imagination, has already been turned into a Broadway musical. Now, it’s time for a Netflix movie!

The streaming provider just dropped the first trailer for the musical movie and it looks every bit as lovable as the book. Netflix’s Matilda the Musical stars newcomer Alisha Weir, Lashana Lynch, Emma Thompson (who you’ll hardly recognize), Stephen Graham, Andrea Riseborough and many more.

The story follows Matilda Wormwood, daughter to two terrible parents who are more interested in their own trashy lives than her. So she sets out to immerse herself in a happy place: her books.

Ever the quiet observer, Matilda comes up with her own fantasy-laden stories, in addition to acts of revenge. Once she steps foot onto her new school campus, Crunchem Hall, Matilda is in for more than she bargained for.

In addition to her inspiring teacher, Miss Honey, she also has to contend with Miss Trunchbull, the epitome of evil. Not only that, her school is dark and dreary, and not at all what she thought.

Last year, Netflix acquired the rights to the Roald Dahl Story Company that includes works such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant PeachThe Witches and The BFG. Matilda the Musical won’t be the only Dahl story reimagined under the partnership.

The company shares that “This acquisition builds on the partnership we started three years ago to create a slate of animated TV series. For example, Academy Award winning filmmaker Taika Waititi and Academy Award nominee Phil Johnston are now hard at work on a series based on the world of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

It seems Netflix has a lot of work to do! Matilda the Musical doesn’t have an official release date, but Deadline reports that it will debut this holiday season only on Netflix.
