What If Matilda Went to Hogwarts? Mara Wilson Answers

She was clearly a witch.

So I’ve always sort of leaned more toward “Matilda is the story of Carrie, but like, Roald Dahl with more cake and less blood” but I like this version a bit more. Mara Wilson brought up Matilda’s total Hogwarts-worthy witch-ness a couple days ago, something that’s floated around Reddit and Twitter for years, and gave us a look at Matilda’s time at our favorite wizarding school. Like her Hogwarts house.

Her crew, because you know McGonagall would’ve loved Matilda.

And how she would’ve seen Harry and the gang.

Seriously Dumbledore, Harry got hundreds of Hogwarts letters, so where did Matilda’s letter go?
