Willy Wonka is back!

A new movie coming is set to explore the untold origin story of famed candymaker Willy Wonka years before the events of Roald Dahl’s 1964 novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Timothée Chalamet will star as the titular character as he goes on adventures. We’ll also see how he meets the famed Oompa-Loompas.

Watch the trailer below:

Wonka is set to be a musical and Chalamet will have seven musical numbers.

Chalamet stars with Olivia Colman, Sally Hawkins, Keegan-Michael Key, Matthew Baynton, Matt Lucas, Rowan Atkinson, Jim Carter, Natasha Rothwell, Simon Farnaby, Paterson Joseph, Tom Davis, Rakhee Thakrar, Justin Edwards, Colin O’Brien, Ellie White, Freya Parker, and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory follows the story of Charlie Bucket, a boy who wins one of five Golden Tickets that allow him to tour the famed chocolate factory. The novel has become one of the most beloved children’s books, inspiring two film adaptations.

Its first adaptation was released in 1971 and was called Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, while the other was released in 2005 and was called Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Gene Wilder and Johnny Depp played the chocolatier.

Wonka will be released on December 15, 2023.
