With a swinging cane, an unmistakable brown top hat, and a velvet long coat, everybody knows Willy Wonka. But before he became the chair of the chocolate factory and pioneer of candy that inspired kids worldwide, Wonka was just a person in search of a calling. Questing for a purpose with no earthly way of knowing in which direction he is going, Wonka must learn to trust himself and those around him in order to thrive. Peculiar as he is, the young man attracts all manner of strange things to him. Traveling through unknown worlds, he meets his companions, the Oompa-Loompas, for the first time. Their meeting will change his fate forever and challenge the young chocolatier to meet his fate head-on and become the tinkering artist in a factory of dreams.
Wonka is a musical fantasy film based on the character Willy Wonka from the Roald Dahl children’s story Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The movie is distributed by Warner Bros. and produced by David Heyman, the producer who first secured the film rights to the Harry Potter books. Wonka is directed by British writer and director Paul King. King is best known as the architect behind the animated Paddington movies which earned him multiple BAFTA nominations. Simon Farnaby handles the screenplay of the movie after his work on Paddington 2 with Paul King. Chung Chung-hoon is handling the cinematography and is known for his work on the Obi-Wan Kenobi television series.

Olivia Colman and Sally Hawkins bring a little stardust to a cast that also includes Jim Carter, Matthew Baynton, and Tom Davis. Hugh Grant stars in the movie as an Oompa Loompa. Welsh costume designer Lindy Hemming oversees the cast costumes which will play an important part in the style of the picture.
