When Matilda meets her inspiring teacher Miss Honey (Lashana Lynch), she is inspired to create her own fantastical stories. However, upon arriving at Crunchem Hall, Matilda is shocked to find a sinister, oppressive atmosphere presided over by the intimidating Miss Trunchbull (Emma Thompson).
Amidst the harshness of Miss Trunchbull, two beacons of kindness shine brightly, Miss Honey (Mara Wilson) and Mrs. Phelps (Sindhu Vee), the story-loving librarian. Matilda (Milly Shapiro) finds solace with them and also forms strong friendships with her schoolmates. Upholding justice, Matilda bravely faces the Trunchbull and gives her a lesson she will never forget.
