Matilda the Musical, the most recent Netflix adaptation of Roald Dahl’s beloved children’s tale, is unquestionably a fun take on the tale.

8/8 Setting Switch

Danny Devito directed the original 1996 film, which set their version of Matilda’s story somewhere in California in the United States. Despite the absence of a specific location, the acting and the inclusion of the FBI in the plot suggest that the setting is American.

However, unlike its predecessor, the film does not specify a specific location. Matilda the Musical takes place in a more hazy but nonetheless British setting, despite the fact that author Roald Dahl originally set the story in Buckinghamshire.

7/8 Family Dynamic

Eight Things When it comes to the Wormwood family, Matilda the Musical makes numerous key changes compared to the original 1996 film. Michael, her older brother, is missing the most. In the most recent movie, Matilda is the only child born to the Wormwood parents, who frequently erroneously refer to her as a boy.

In the musical, Matilda’s parents are much more deliberate in their abuse, frequently going to great lengths to scold her and shout at her. In the original 1996 film, they are far from kind, but in that adaptation, they are more neglectful than abusive.

In the movie, Crunchem Hall is mostly a normal, if not quite decrepit, school. Miss Trunchbull makes the students run through a muddy obstacle course while yelling at them and blowing up landmines when the students’ rebellion becomes too much.
