“Wonka” revealed its first official trailer and this is how Timothée Chalamet looks like the chocolatier

Based on the central character of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, “Wonka” tells the story of how the greatest inventor, magician and chocolatier became the famous Willy Wonka.

The first official trailer for wonkathe new film inspired by Roald Dahl’s children’s novel, is here. Timothée Chalamet (call me by your name) once again proves his versatility on the big screen as the young and dreamy version of the famous owner of the chocolate factory. The film produced by Warner Bros. Pictures will bring a different story in which it will take a closer look at the origins of the character through the musical genre and at the same time will feature a talented cast of Hollywood stars.

Directed by the British Paul King (paddington), this title will leave behind the interpretations of Gene Wilder and Johnny Deppwho gave life to the lover of sweets in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory of 1971 and his reboot namesake directed by Tim Burton in 2005. In such a way, Chalamet (who will also be this 2023 in the sequel to Dune) will not only officially be the third actor to don the chocolatier’s hat, but also the youngest to date.

But Timothée is not the only star in this feature film. Previously revealed exclusively to attendees of this year’s CinemaCon, the trailer also features the participation of Hugh grant as the new face of the Oompa-Loompas. In these new images, the actor can be seen leaving behind his well-known facet as a leading man in several Hollywood films and becoming the main face of the peculiar workers who spend their days inside Wonka’s factory.

In addition, among the main British figures in the cast are also the Oscar winner, Olivia Colman; the actor behind mr bean, Rowan Atkinson; the winner of the Golden Globe and star in the shape of water, sally hawkins; comedian and screenwriter Keegan-Michael Key, the voice of Toad in Super Mario Bros: The Movie; among other names like Jim Carter, Mathew Baynton and Tom Davis.

wonka opens in the United States on December 15, 2023. After some delays, Warner Bros. Pictures finally decided that the film should reach the whole world during Christmas time, which already suggests a little of what we will see in this new story , which will take place many years before Wonka founded his great chocolate factory and became an enigmatic and famous figure.

Timothée Chalamet has announced that his version of the character will not be similar to that of his predecessors. Within the framework of CinemaCon, the 27-year-old interpreter pointed out that the adult Wonka that the audience has seen on the big screen is a “cynical” man and a little more arrogant. “This is a Willy full of joy, hope and desire to become the greatest chocolatier,” explained the young star.

Likewise, Chalamet mentioned that interpreting the character created by the novelist Roald Dahl is “a dream come true.” For a couple of years, she has been seen in acclaimed productions such as call me by your name (2017), Lady Bird (2017), little women (2019), Dune (2021) and don’t look up (2021). By this 2023, she will also be together with Zendaya in Dune: part two.
