Netflix dropped a trailer for the highly anticipated movie, "Matilda the Musical," which is based on Roald Dahl's novel "Matilda" published in 1988. Previously, a movie of the same name was made based on this novel in 1996.

Considering Netflix's remake, the newly dropped trailer shows actress Emma Thompson as Miss Trunchbull's character while recreating the iconic scene from the 90's movie, where she horrifyingly grabs a little girl by the hair and throws her across the school ground.

The two-minute, 22-second trailer starts with Matilda's character (played by Alisha Weir), who is resting on a hammock. "Once upon a time, there was a little girl, who was trapped. This is the story of her great escape." the voiceover says.

The next scene introduces the character of Ms. Honey, played by Lashana Lynch, who calls Matilda a "genius" after learning about her interest in reading books at a very young age while Matilda's father, played by Stephen Graham, can be seen angrily tearing off her book.

The clip further shows Matilda entering the school named Crunchem Hall, where Miss Trunchbull, the headmistress, is seen monitoring the kids via CCTV camera. After a few seconds, she comes out and as a punishment, literally, throws a little girl in the air.

The trailer also features another iconic scene where a student who likes cake is forced to eat a giant chocolate cake in front of the entire school.

Later in the trailer, Matilda shows off her hidden power to her teacher, Ms. Honey and all students march against the headmistress.

"Matilda the Musical" is slated to release on Netflix, on Dec. 25. Helmed by director Matthew Warchus, the movie also stars Andrea Riseborough, Sindhu Vee, Carl Spencer and Jemma Geanaus.

This is not the first time when Netflix is recreating classic stories like "Matilda." The streaming giant shared the trailer of "Wednesday Addams" earlier this week which is based on the '90s "The Addams Family" movie franchise.

Apart from this, Netflix will also release a bunch of original content this month. From "The Curse of Bridge Hollow" to "The School for Good and Evil," here's a list of everything you can watch.
