Rhea Perlman The cast of Matilda was reunited over the weekend (28-30Jun13) to celebrate the 17th anniversary of the hit family film.

Danny DeVito and wife Rhea Perlman, who played ghastly parents Harry and Zinnia Wormwood, oversaw the get-together as the August (13) anniversary of the 1996 movie approaches.

Mara Wilson, the child star who played young genius Matilda in the big screen adaptation of Roald Dahl's classic kids' book, mingled with other co-stars, including Brit Pam Ferris, who played ferocious headmistress Ms. Trunchbull.

Wilson stepped out of the spotlight in 2000 to concentrate on her studies, and vowed to never appear in another film during an interview last year (12).

Matilda has since been turned into a successful stage musical, winning a raft of awards in both the U.K. and U.S.
