The official trailer of Wonka, a prequel to Roald Dahl’s cherished Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, has unveiled a glimpse of Oscar nominee Timothée Chalamet, portraying the protagonist. Known for his roles in Dune and Call Me by Your Name, Chalamet embodies the youthful incarnation of Willy Wonka, the idiosyncratic chocolatier, in his formative years before establishing his famed factory. Alongside him, the film features an ensemble cast including Hugh Grant as a computergenerated Oompa Loompa, along with Olivia Colman, Sally Hawkins, Rowan Atkinson, and Keegan-Michael Key.
‘Wonka’ is directed by the BAFTA-nominated Paul King, who has previously helmed the two ‘Paddington’ films, from a script he co-wrote with Simon Farnaby. Heyman Films, makers of the Harry Potter films,
serve as producers on ‘Wonka’.
