Plot

Timothee Chalamet plays a young Willy Wonka in this new adaptation of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," a children's book by author Roald Dahl that was published in 1964.

This new adaptation tells the story of how the biggest inventor, magician and chocolatier of the planet turned into Willy Wonka, the enigmatic character we know now days. A young Willy will be introduced in the chocolate and the magic world and there'll be people who will try to stop him, but he won't let them.

Wonka's adolescence wasn't easy and he didn't became the chocolate Mozart from dust to dawn. The young Willy will embark on a mission to share joy among people through hiscrazy inventions, which will turn fast into a phenomenon that'll will also capture the unwanted attention from the Chocolate Cartel.

In his intimate story we will also meet the people who accompanied and were important to Willy Wonka during his ascent to fame. His mother and his friendship with an orphan girl were a major factor in the chocolatier's life.

Paul King, author of the two installments of 'Paddington', is in charge of directing this new adaptation of the legendary tale. Joining Chalamet in the cast are Olivia Colman, Rowan Atkison, Tom David, Matt Lucas and Hugh Grant playing a little Oompa Loompa.

Trivia

Oompa-Loompa origins

The design of the Oompa Loompas is taken straight out of 'Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory' (1971), the first adaptation of the novel. The descriptions of the Oompa Loompas from the novels only specify that they have knee-length height, long hair, and speak their own language.

Doubts Timothée had with 'Wonka'

Timothée Chalamet admitted he was skeptical of the movie at first: "Like many people, when there are remakes, I feel very protective over the original character and versions you love. Your eyebrows go up with skepticism about [whether] this is a legitimate, worthwhile story or a cynical money grab."

Too much sugar

Timothée Chalamet got sick multiple times during filming due to how much chocolate and candy he had to eat for the movie.
