After two years of previews and riddles surrounding the film, the official trailer has been unveiled for this long-awaited movie that takes us into the early adventures of young Willy Wonka, played by Timothée Chalamet.

Wonka’, the film that deals with the chocolate maker’s adolescence, directed by Paul King, becomes a prequel to the chimera and sweet delusions of Gene Wilder’s iconic 1971 film, as well as Tim Burton’s fascinating version, ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ (2005), starring Johnny Depp.

However, unlike Burton’s remake, King ‘didn’t want to reinvent’ the iconic Gene Wilder film. Instead, he wanted to create Wonka as a ‘companion piece’ to it, he told Entertainment Weekly. 

Beyond Timothée, the cast of the new film, which will debut at the height of the holiday season on December 15, 2023, also includes other notable actors such as Olivia Colman -who recently appeared in the standout seventh episode of the second season of ‘The Bear’- and Hugh Grant, star of ‘Paddington’, in the role of an Oompa Loompa.

The recently released official trailer thus opens the doors to this fictional world that shows a young Willy Wonka returning from his travels abroad, during which he perfected the art of making chocolate. “How do you like it?” he asks. “Dark? White? With nuts? Absolutely crazy?”.

In the midst of that adventurous story, Wonka will pursue his dream: to open a chocolate shop, as a mission or a latent desire that will be cut short by the budding chocolatiers in his town who are part of a restrictive chocolate cartel.
