Apart from Matilda, the movie is full of other high-profile stars. Alyson Hannigan plays Flora’s mother, Ben Schwartz plays her father and Danny Pudi plays the villain, Miller.
Upon the release of the movie on 19 February 2021, Matilda’s performance was praised by critics. She was energetic and succinct with her expressions, her comic timing was perfect and it never feels like while they were filming the movie she had only one acting credit.
In an interview, Matilda said that she found acting with either a rat or nothing at all (Ulysses the squirrel was mostly VFX) very challenging. Still, it was a learning experience and she did incredibly well.
