Emma Thompson is Unrecognizable in Full 'The Hammer' Number from Matilda the Musical

This Christmas brought the Matilda musical to Netflix, and if you haven’t gotten around to checking it out yet, Netflix has released the full Hammer number performed by Emma Thompson, Lashana Lynch, and the film’s young cast of kids.

Check this out:

The song essentially gives audiences an idea of how hard Trunchbull (Thompson) has the kids under her thumb, and it basically sets the school up for the children to start revolting against her in the future.

I have to say, it’s kind of funny that Thompson would now put on heavy make-up to play the part of the villain Trunchbull, as the last time she was unrecognizable in make-up was back in 2010 when she played the part of a magical nanny who helped children with Nanny McPhee Returns.

So far, reviews have been sparkling for Matilda. If Glass Onion is too mature for your taste, and you’re looking for something on the same lines as Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio, Matilda the Musical should be the perfect film for the holiday season.

Here’s the official description:

Matilda Wormwood (Alisha Weir) is a little girl with big curiosity, a sharp mind and a vivid imagination – and the worst parents in the world. While her parents (Stephen Graham and Andrea Riseborough) content themselves with trashy TV and dodgy money-making schemes, she loves to lose herself in the pages of her beloved books. Where they are loud, selfish and unkind she is a quiet observer, thinking up small and cheeky acts of rebellion and revenge. On meeting her inspirational teacher, Miss Honey (Lashana Lynch), Matilda is encouraged and begins conjuring her own fantastical tales. Excited to attend Crunchem Hall, Matilda is surprised to find the school is an ominous and oppressive place led by the huge and villainous Miss Trunchbull (Emma Thompson). As well as kind Miss Honey, the bright lights among the meanness are story-loving librarian, Mrs. Phelps (Sindhu Vee), and Matilda’s newfound school friends. Filled with an overwhelming sense of justice, Matilda dares to take a stand for what is right and teach Trunchbull a lesson she won’t forget. Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical is an inspirational musical tale of an extraordinary girl who discovers her superpower and summons the remarkable courage, against all odds, to help others change their stories, whilst also taking charge of her own destiny. Standing up for what’s right, she’s met with miraculous results.

Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical is now streaming on Netflix.
