Book : Matilda ( 1988)
Movie: Matilda ( 1996)
Author: Roald Dahl
Obviously there were a lot many differences between both of them. I honestly liked the scene with the parrot which wasn’t adapted into the movie. On further thoughts, maybe it did suggest being harmful for the bird and hence wasn’t taken into consideration.
The movie did add the scene where Matilda’s goes to Trunchbull’s house that wasn’t in the book which added a lot of humour to the movie.
Some of the character details were changed in the movie like the parent’s weight and the brother was a bully and Hortensia was her friend instead.
I did like Lavender’s character in the movie particularly.
Overall, I equally enjoyed the movie as compared to the book.
