Nope, you aren’t dreaming: There was a real-life ‘Matilda’ reunion, and we’ve got the picture to prove it!
Our nostalgia levels are on overdrive today. Obviously, everyone still loves Matilda— yes, you included. Thankfully, nearly 19 years after the film was released, Matilda (Mara Wilson) and Lavender (Kiami Davael) have reunited and they were kind enough to share a photo of it! Click inside to see the pic– but only if you’re sure your heart can handle it!
Once in a blue moon, show business just really comes through for us.
This is certainly one of those times. Mara and Kiami obviously played BFFs in the classic 90s film Matilda, in which they were forced to endure the wrath of Trunchbull (Pam Ferris) and were ultimately able to pull through their struggles with the help of one another.
Seeing them back together is certainly giving us some seriously 90s feels and, while I generally am hesitant to refer to something as “everything,” I have to admit: this reunion is everything.
The ‘Matilda’ Legacy
Based on the book of the same name by Roald Dahl, Matilda tells the story of a little girl, who happens to be a genius, and her wonderful teacher vs. the worst parents ever and the worst school principal imaginable, according to the film’s official description.
The power of Matilda can still be seen today. Not only are both the book and film still popular, but in 2013, a Broadway musical of the same name was created and it went on to win four Tony Awards.
Dominating entertainment through three different mediums, it’s clear that the story of precocious Matilda will continue to touch lives for years and years to come.
What do you guys think of this mini Matilda reunion? Do you still love the movie?
