5 Must-Read Roald Dahl Movie Pairings


Day 7: Miss Trunchbull from Matilda. I wanted to cover the version from Matilda the Musical also, b/c while she's still awful as ever, the musical lends her a dark, sophisticated humor, and makes much more clear her influence on Miss Honey. Miss Honey is much more timid here than in her other iterations, even calling herself "pathetic." Once you make the connection between Miss Honey's personality and Miss Trunchbull's abuse towards her, you can't help but hate her more.
