Corden recruited Tim Minchin, who composed the music for the Matilda musical and the upcoming Groundhog Day, to perform a satirical version of Matilda’s “When I Grow Up” alongside Dear Evan Hansen’s Ben Platt, and Abigail Spencer (Give us a Timeless musical episode; also, renew Timeless!). This the the most cutting political commentary based off of Matilda since you compared your mom to Miss Trunchbull when she made you clean your room as a kid.
