Guess what: Matilda is being released on Blu-ray. Over the years, Matilda has become something of a cult classic, so fans will be pleased to know that there are some fantastic extras.
One extra includes footage of a cast reunion that Danny DeVito hosted last summer. One of the activities at this glorious event included some live reenactments of scenes — which, unsurprisingly, is a bit awkward when you see Bruce Bogtrotter replaced with a grown man, but is nevertheless completely engrossing.
This is one of the most memorable scenes of the film. Here, Bruce Bogtrotter is forced to eat an entire cake by the evil Trunchbull.
Oh my goodness. This is "Bruce" today. He's totally cute.
And here is Pam Ferris (who played the Trunchbull) and Jimmy Karz (Bruce) re-creating the scene.
Albeit with a cupcake.
