Wonka 2023


The story of Wonka is not fully known. The film will be a prequel giving us more information on Willy’s backstory and how he become a world-famous chocolatier. Still, until we get a teaser trailer, we don’t have much to go on.

Willy Wonka will be played by none other than Timothée Chalamet. The young actor is coming off an outstanding 2021 where he starred as Paul Atreides in (Dune: Part One), Zeffirelli (The French Dispatch), and Quentin (Don’t Look Up). Initially, Warner Bros. was also interested in Tom Holland for the role of Wonka but ultimately landed on Chalamet. Follow castmember Keegan-Michael Key has praised Chalamet's performance, saying:

Willy Wonka is an odd yet creative genius. The character first appeared in the novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and its sequel, Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator. The candy maker is an enigma to those around him, constantly using his quirky and outside-of-the-box thinking to build his brand. Wonka is a supporting character as he looks for a successor for his chocolate factory.
