Roald Dahl fans will get to see one of his most popular stories come to life again. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix is working with Sony Pictures to create a film based on the wildly successful stage production 'Matilda the Musical', which was initially inspired by the original book 'Matilda' by Roald Dahl.

The film adaptation will be released in theatres in the UK before it will be available for streaming on Netflix.

No details around the cast have been released yet, but fans have already asked that the 1996 Matilda actress Mara Wilson make a special appearance in the film. Perhaps she could be the next Miss Honey?
