Wonka is a prequel film to Roald Dahl’s classic novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and follows the origins of the legendary candy maker. From his first encounter with the Oompa Loompas to founding his deliciously magnificent headquarters, Wonka explores the character in a new light. Timothee Chalamet assumes the role of Willy Wonka himself.
Warner Bros. announced that the studio will release Wonka, a prequel film set in the years prior to the opening of Willy Wonka's famous chocolate factory. It will follow the adventures of a young Willy Wonka, a character who originated in Roald Dahl's 1964 book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Willy Wonka has since been adapted to live-action, with Gene Wilder's 1971 portrayal of the character perhaps being the most popular. For now, the plot details for Wonka are relatively scarce. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available. The film will be directed by Paul King.
