More from the cast of the coming Willy Wonka prequel has just been announced by Warner Bros. Today, Rowan Atkinson, Olivia Colman and Sally Hawkins have been announced as cast members. This tweak will be the third take to hit the big screen, and the first since Charlie and the chocolate Factory came out in 2005. The first was: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, which came out in 1971.

Other cast members previously confirmed by Warner Bros. are Timothée Chalamet and Keegan-Michael Key. Chalamet will play the titular character, a young Willy Wonka. While many are familiar with the classic tale of a young boy who wins a trip to a giant candy factory, wonka is supposed to tell the story of what happens before Charlie comes to visit.

Chalamet follows in the footsteps of Gene Wilder and Johnny Depp, the other two actors who brought the role to life on screen. These recent cast announcements come as production has reportedly officially begun. Jim Carter has also reportedly joined the cast, though his role is unknown as of yet. Also unknown is the specific timeline of the movie that follows a “young” Willy Wonka, but how young?

wonka has a tentative release date of March 17, 2023. The latest adaptation was directed by Tim Burton, who signed the film. This version is directed by Paul King, the director best known for: paddington. wonka was announced in 2016, so this has all been a long time coming. King has previously collaborated with Hawkins on paddington.

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971)

Willy Woka and the Chocolate Factory came out in 1971 and is an adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. Willy Wonka is played by Gene Wilder, in a performance considered iconic by many. Mel Stuart directed the musical, which Dahl didn’t like because of all the changes made to his source material. The film was not a major commercial hit, but critics and audiences alike loved it.

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory has been praised for the way it blends the joyful with the bizarre to create a wholly unique experience. Gene Wilder’s performance is a constant standout, so much so that other castings of the character have been relentless compared to his original version.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)

The next adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was a movie of the same name in 2005. This time it was directed by Tim Burton, the king of what we call dark whimsy. Helena Bonham Carter and Christopher Lee are also notably featured in the film. Danny Elfman wrote the music for the songs, which came straight from Dahl’s book.

The film did well commercially and received fairly good reviews overall. Especially the visuals and sticking to the source material were a source of praise. Johnny Depp’s performance as Willy Wonka inspired many conversations. Many enjoyed his unique take on the character and praised the way he seemed to give the character more depth than what had been seen before.

Those who didn’t enjoy Depp’s performance thought he missed the mark. Many thought he was going too weird, to the point where the performance was just off-putting. Whatever you think of his performance, he definitely went there and tried something new. His performance contributed to the general uneasiness you feel during this Tim Burton adaptation.

And here’s a fun fact: Chalamet, the next actor to play Willy Wonka, famously dated Depp’s daughter Lily-Rose Depp. We’re sure Chalamet will bring his own style to the role, especially since Wilder & Depp’s performances aren’t easy to imitate.
