Parkour Generations

Netflix’s Matilda Making Moves

Published March 26th 2021

We are now deep into production on the Netflix musical film version of Matilda by Roald Dahl, and we can tell you this one is making some serious moves…

Having cast for this in the autumn of 2020, we’ve now got ten fantastic young athletes putting parkour at centre stage in some of the epic musical numbers choreographed by Ellen Kane and our own Dan Edwardes. PKGen Team Members Dayne Nembhard, Luke Aquilina, Natalia Anson and Serg Abramenkov added their skills to the early creative mix, and rehearsals are now in full swing.

The film stars Emma Thompson, Lashana Lynch and newcomer Alisha Weir in the title role. With over 200 children in some of the larger numbers, this promises to be a quite spectacular and explosive modern retelling of the classic tale. Stay tuned for release details and more!
