A Matilda reboot is on the cards, and Netflix has cast no other than Lashana Lynch as Miss Honey!

But fans of the original movie have voiced their opinions on the exciting announcement...

Now, the 1996 movie Matilda gave us some of the most iconic moments in film history.

From lines to live by, all the way down to the power of intelligence, get ready for a whole lot of nostalgic tingles to hit you right in the feels.

I've got to start with my favorite moment of all time, haven't I?

Who could ever forget the moment we were introduced to the terrifying headmistress, Miss Trunchbull?

Striding across the schoolyard, she would hunt down her "fresh meat"...

And thus came the moment that poor little Amanda Thripp was flung over the school fence by her pigtails after Trunchbull randomly decided that the hairstyle was only meant for "pigs."

The movie went on to bring so many more iconic moments.

One name. Bruce Bogtrotter. The chocolate cake. Of course, you remember this truly terrifying moment.

But a little support goes a long way...

When it seemed as if Miss Trunchbull was going to win this one, Brucie managed to pull through by finishing the entire cake... but then had the plate smashed over his head. Yikes. The satisfaction was worth it.

But then again, Bruce probably ended up in "The Chokey..."

Don't even get me started. A wild contraption for naughty and nice children alike. I would rather deal with an ax-wielding murderer than spend an hour in that thing... So maybe the satisfaction wasn't worth it...

Moving quickly on...

But thankfully, the horrible headmistress got exactly what she deserved in the end.

The brutal headmistress chased our favorite elementary teacher, Miss Honey, out of her own home...

And after scoffing down all her late father's chocolates, Miss Honey finally got the revenge she needed.

With the help of Matilda, of course...

Oh, how we love to see the bad guys get exactly what they deserve!

The movie taught us so many life lessons...

And now, the news has broken out that there may be a follow-up film coming our way very soon.

That's right, a brand-new Matilda might be hitting our screens very soon!

Although people have had a lot to say about who has been announced to be stepping into the shoes of Miss Honey...

Lashana Lynch, who is set to star in the new Bond film No Time To Die, is said to have been cast as Miss Honey for the remake.

Yep, the thirty-three-year-old Bond star will become the kind teacher who befriends Matilda.

Miss Honey was played by Embeth Davidtz in the original...

So there's no doubting that Lynch will have some big boots to fill!

Matthew Warchus, who directed the stage musical, will also be directing the reboot...

Dennis Kelly, the original playwright, is also set to adapt the screenplay with music and lyrics from Australian comedian and musician Tim Minchin.

It will be shown on Netflix following the U.K theatrical release...

And we can't wait! Stay tuned for the latest updates...
