Get ready to return to the chocolate factory.
This morning we learned that Timothee Chalamet would play the leading role Wonka, an original story for the Roald Dahl character.
According to Deadline, The film “will focus on a boy Willy Wonka and his adventures before the opening of the world’s most famous chocolate factory. Sources also say Deadline that Wonka will be the first time Chalamet show his singing and dancing skills with multiple musical numbers set to appear in the film. ”
Even better news, the original musical film is being directed by Paul King, fresh from the two of them Paddington Movies.
There won’t be a Charlie Bucket in these films. These seem to revolve around Wonka’s individual adventures and perhaps how he meets them Oompa Loompas. I wonder how they are portrayed. We have seen that Hollywood is quite insensitive to indigenous people, and both previous Wonka films had to be cautious in this area.
Are you looking forward to the new wonka? Let us know in the comments.
