Timothee Chalamet Explains Connection Between ‘Wonka’ and 1971’s ‘Willy Wonka’

Guess what? Timothée Chalamet is spilling the cocoa beans on how his groovy new flick Wonka connects with the OG candy classic, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory from 1971.

Picture this: the 27-year-old heartthrob stepping into the sugary shoes of the chocolate maestro himself in a prequel to the original film that starred the legendary Gene Wilder.

As he hyped up the upcoming movie, set to hit theaters on December 15, Timothée spilled the Wonka tea, giving us the scoop on the sweet relationship between Wonka and its predecessor.

Hold on to your golden tickets because Timothée spilled, “This is like the BFF movie to the 1971 Gene Wilder film. We’re talking about the color palette – it’s like they were sharing a closet! And oh, the song ‘Pure Imagination’ is basically our film’s national anthem, just like it was for the Gene Wilder masterpiece. So, buckle up for the wild ride into the story of a young, wide-eyed, and maybe slightly clueless Willy Wonka, way before the Gene Wilder version that’s forever etched in our childhood memories.”

Talk about a golden ticket to laughter!
