Matilda the Musical Featurette Spotlights the Fantastic Choreography

There are a lot of things to love about Netflix’s Matilda the Musical, but one thing that definitely stands out is the dance choreography performed by over 200 kids.

Just in, we have a new featurette delving into the rehearsal process of the movie, and we have a look at all the child dancers who had to pull off those insane numbers. Watch this:

Here’s the official description:

An inside look at what it took for the young cast of Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical to bring the incredible dance sequences to life on screen–from rehearsals to the final take.

Though the original stage play was kind of limited to what they could bring to the live theaters, the movie goes all out with the visuals, not only showcasing elaborate sets, but spectacular dance numbers as well.

Even the numbers that don’t have the children in the spotlight still require them to pull off some kind of impressive choreography, with specific blocking and intricate movement.

The movie is definitely an interesting adaptation, with stellar performances all around. I wonder what other Roald Dahl property Netflix has in store for the future.

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.

Matilda the Musical is now streaming on Netflix.
