Back in the summer we got teased ‘anything is possible’, now Warner Bros have released the second UK Trailer for Wonka and everything looks ‘proper bo!’
Paul King directs the prequel to the iconic Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, with Gene Wilder as the legendary Willy Wonka. Of course a certain Johnny Depp has also played willy too, this time it’s Timothée Chalamet.
This is a prequel which follows in how Willy began the dream to make the chocolate. In this trailer a tease of how Willy meets the Oompa Loompa (aka Hugh Grant), anyone for a song and dance?

Based on 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 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.
