Tim discusses why he didn’t get to see any of the film being filmed, how Emma Thompson is a ‘Dahl monster’ and the extraordinary efficiency from newcomer Alisha Weir that’s on the coronary heart of the movie.
Tim explains how Covid meant he missed out on seeing his musical Matilda being delivered to life: ‘Matilda was carried out fully with out me and it’s positive as a result of I’m the composer/lyricist – I wasn’t the director. I wasn’t concerned a lot, besides when Matthew [Warchus, the director] was casting if I needed to I suppose I may have made a fuss however I don’t get entangled the place I’m not wanted. I largely sat again, apart from I wrote a brand new tune for it, and I actually hoped I’d recover from to the UK and watch a few of the filming only for my very own pleasure and edification, however I used to be trapped in Australia by way of the entire interval.’

And once I say the perfect we will all consider iconic youngsters in movies however what she has to do vocally and emotionally it truly is phenomenal, she is totally superb. Nevertheless it’s additionally attributable to together with her chemistry with Lashana Lynch, who’s out of the blue this large star – she’s been in Marvel motion pictures, she’s been 007 – and on this film she is totally totally different She’s such a unprecedented actress she turns into a very totally different vitality.
Emma Thompson is totally batty and bonkers and an actual Dahl monster after which on the coronary heart of this film is the connection between Miss Honey and Matilda. There’s a second within the film that simply makes me sob. I don’t assume it makes youngsters sob, which is nice as a result of youngsters don’t like crying, however in case you’re an grownup most adults like crying and this’ll do it for you.’
