In a special episode of the Film Stories podcast, Simon is joined by director Matthew Warchus and screenwriter Dennis Kelly, with the focus primarily being 2022’s Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical.

In their conversation, they talk about taking the hugely success musical from stage to screen, and how brutal they had to be as they did so. They chat too the many, many drafts of the script, the songs that were filmed but which didn’t make the finally cut, and a bit of CG involving a giraffe.

You also get little mentions of both Pride and Utopia too, and the pair both end up with what their clickbait news stories would be…
