“Matilda” in Concert – Danny DeVito and Mara Wilson Plan Reunion Amid Hollywood Actors’ Strike Delays

NOTE: This article is 2 months old and may not include the most recent information.

The film “Matilda” has charmed audiences since 1996, and there’s been considerable excitement about a reunion event featuring its stars, Danny DeVito and Mara Wilson. The event, aptly titled “Matilda in Concert”, is designed to showcase the movie while a live orchestra plays its memorable score. Adding to this unique experience, DeVito and Wilson were set to narrate the film, offering audiences a deeper connection to the story.

But there’s been a slight change in plans. As most are aware, the Hollywood actors’ strike has caused disruptions across the industry. DeVito, in a recent chat with The Messenger, shared the following.

“We had it all set, but, after the strike hit, we couldn’t proceed because it would be seen as a promotion for a movie,” he explained. “However, we’re still planning to do that. We’re going to watch the movie with David Newman‘s score and try to do it sometime soon, as it seems the strike may be coming to an end – I hope!”

The event was originally slated to take place with the New Jersey Symphony on September 9, 2023, but had to be postponed. Both the Symphony and the event’s key players have expressed their commitment to finding a new date and ensuring that the “Matilda” experience for fans will be worth the wait.
