Overview

How did Willy become Wonka? Wonka takes us back to the start-up days of the extraordinary character at the centre of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Roald Dahl’s most iconic children’s book and one of the best-selling books of all time. Megastar Timothée Chalamet embodies the iconic character, whom Gene Wilder first brought to life on the silver screen in 1971, but this time, he’s a young inventor with a dream of creating the greatest chocolate shop the world has ever seen. He’ll need the help of his friend Noodle to take on the impossible red tape enforced by the local chocolate cartel.

"The most fun you'll have in a cinema all year."

The Telegraph UK

"An absolute Christmas treat; it’s spectacular, imaginative, sweet-natured and funny."

The Guardian

"Wonka is old-fashioned, cinematic magic writ large."

The Independent UK

Why You Should See This Film

Wonka director Paul King is the filmmaker behind Paddington and Paddington 2, which launched a thousand memes when it dethroned Citizen Kane as the best reviewed film of all time on Rotten Tomatoes in 2021. Paddington 2 star Hugh Grant brings another gleefully silly performance to this film, this time as an Oompa-Loompa, and the rest of the supporting cast is an assorted box of favourites like Olivia Colman, Sally Hawkins, Keegan Michael-Key, Rowan Atkinson, Natasha Rothwell and more.
