Matilda 2 Release Date: Is a Netflix Sequel Already in the Works?

Matilda 2 Release Date: Matilda the Musical is based on Tim Minchin's 2011 stage show, which was in turn based on Roald Dahl's popular 1988 book. If you didn't find out about the story there, you probably did in Danny DeVito's masterpiece from 1996.

In our review, we said that the Netflix movie was “loud, bright, and garish, and kids are going to love it as long as they can handle the darker parts of the story.” People may wonder if there will be a Matilda 2 when the musical comes out on streaming service this Christmas.

When Will Matilda 2 Come Out on Netflix?

While Netflix has not announced Matilda 2, a sequel to the musical is exceedingly unlikely. Matilda the Musical has already danced its way into theatres in the UK and Ireland.

Fans outside of the UK who want to watch the movie from the comfort of their own homes will be happy to hear that on December 25, 2022, Netflix will start streaming the movie all over the world.

But it won't be available on Netflix in the UK and Ireland at the same time. For now, the only way to watch it in these places is in a movie theatre. We don't know exactly when Matilda will be on UK Netflix, but Sony has confirmed that it will be there in the summer of 2023.

When the movie was first shown, the plot was also revealed: Matilda is a five-and-a-half-year-old girl who is smart, and gifted and has to deal with her family's stupidity. Matilda makes friends with the beautiful Miss Honey at school and is finally able to show how smart she is.

Ralph Fiennes won't be in the movie version of the book, though, because Emma Thompson has been cast instead of him. Ralph Fiennes stepped down from the role, but no one has said why. We're sure he would have made a funny Miss Trunchbull, though.

  • Andrea Riseborough as Mrs. Wormwood
  • Stephen Graham as Mr. Wormwood
  • Lashana Lynch as Miss Honey
  • Alisha Weir as Matilda Wormwood
  • Sindhu Vee as Mrs. Phelps

Is the Matilda Film Based on the Musical?

Because the musical did not premiere until 2010, the earlier Matilda film, produced in 1996, was an adaptation of the novel. This film is based on the successful musical and is directed by Matthew Warchus, who also helmed the show's West End and Broadway versions.
