Willy Wonka and His Chocolate Factory

The new “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” prequel is a hit!

The new hit movie, Wonka has flown off the charts, topping the box office for the third time since its first release. Many are pleased with this film and have shown their love for it everywhere. 

     This movie revolves around the origin story of the beloved character Willy Wonka. We get a glimpse into his backstory and how he got to where he is in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory now. Paul King, the director of Wonka, does a wonderful job in showing the origin of Willy Wonka and gives us an insight into his childhood and how he was shaped into this magic chocolatier. Wonka’s genuineness, loyalty, and commitment to do the right thing made this film so worth watching.

     The film unfolds with Wonka’s quest to find and build his perfect chocolate empire. The focus on Wonka’s backstory and his search for this chocolate empire occasionally detracts from the original story’s simplicity. However, the film manages to tie everything together in the end, providing a nice resolution to the film’s new prequel and the familiar tale we all know and love. 

    Timothée Chalamet took on the lead role of Willy Wonka and did an amazing job at it. He really brought his character to life with such charm and charisma. The rest of the cast also did an incredible job in portraying their characters. Calah Lane as Noodle, Hugh Grant as one of the Oompa Loompas, Keegan-Michael Key as Chief of Police, Paterson Joseph as Slugworth, and so many more great actors. 

     The visual effects and cinematography in this movie are incredible. The vibrant colors of chocolate and candy shown throughout the whole film truly captures you and is displayed so beautifully. There is not a dull scene in this movie. 

     The film’s soundtrack, produced by Neil Hannon and Joby Talbot is also very well done. Each song exhibits every moment perfectly and enhances the magical atmosphere. The songs are very catchy and lively and you just can’t get them out of your head while watching. 

     Overall, this film was directed perfectly, bringing Roald Dahl’s characters to life. Providing the audience with the history of the brilliant Willy Wonka. This film is definitely great for everyone and a must see.
