Matilda Star Imagines Awesome Harry Potter Crossover

Roald Dahl’s Matilda is about a brilliant child with magical abilities. So, it makes sense that some fans drew the connection to another famous character: Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series. When the fan’s idea reached Mara Wilson, star of the Matilda movie adaptation, she ran with it! 

Wilson started out by quoting a fan’s clever observation:

Wilson could have left it there, but instead she treated fans to an imaginative account of what Matilda’s school days at Hogwarts might be like:

Wilson got some help from fans, who have apparently been creating Matilda/Harry Potter crossover stories for years! Some fans even corrected the actress on the age difference between the characters.

J.K. Rowling hasn’t chimed in yet, but she’s so good at Twitter that we’re holding out hope for a response! Could we get a story based on this, please?
