This new Wonka movie stars Timothee Chalamet as the iconic character from Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. If you think he’s a bit young for the role, there’s a good reason for this. Instead of being another adaptation of Dahl’s story, this movie serves as a prequel to the ever-popular sotry.

The film’s premise is described as:

“Based on the extraordinary character at the center of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” Roald Dahl’s most iconic children’s book and one of the best-selling children’s books of all time, “Wonka” tells the wondrous story of how the world’s greatest inventor, magician and chocolate-maker became the beloved Willy Wonka we know today. “Wonka” is an intoxicating mix of magic and music, mayhem and emotion, all told with fabulous heart and humor. Starring Timothée Chalamet in the title role, this irresistibly vivid and inventive big screen spectacle will introduce audiences to a young Willy Wonka, chock-full of ideas and determined to change the world one delectable bite at a time—proving that the best things in life begin with a dream, and if you’re lucky enough to meet Willy Wonka, anything is possible.”
