The 'Matilda Challenge' is here and it's sweeping the internet right now

Anyone who has ever seen the 90s childrens film Matilda will fondly recall the scene where the pint sized hero creates literal magic in her parents house.

Everything about the scene is truly wonderful and lovely, and is just one of the reasons why the film is so fondly remembered despite being released more than 20 years ago.

Surely, the magic of that scene couldn't be recreated in the real world. Everything is boring and awful here and we can't make objects fly around the room, no matter how hard we try.

But maybe we are wrong. Maybe the good people on the Internet has found a way to create actual magic and share this miraculous discovery with everyone.

Introducing the Matilda Challenge (think the Neymar challenge but with less rolling around) where an individual or group move objects around the room, as if by magic.

Even Mara Wilson, who played Matilda in the 1996 film, has caught wind of the challenge and she loves it just as much as everyone else.

It might be sound a bit hyperbolic, but we reckon that this might be the sweetest internet trend we've ever seen.
