Timothée Chalamet is spilling the cocoa beans on Wonka, and guess what? A potential sequel might be sweeter than a river of chocolate!
Picture this: a young Willy Wonka strutting his stuff, trying to figure out how to turn cocoa beans into the magical goodness we know today. Directed by the genius Paul King, Wonka is the prequel we never knew we needed, revealing how our favorite chocolate maestro came to be from the awkward teen to the quirky candy king.
Now, hold onto your golden tickets because at the movie’s grand premiere in Los Angeles on a magical Sunday (December 10), Timothée Chalamet, the man with the hair that could rival a curly Wonka mustache, spilled the cocoa beans on the possibility of a sequel. Can you imagine Timothée’s Willy Wonka shenanigans in a follow-up flick? Well, he’s all in for it! He told ET, “If there was a story to be told,” (spoiler alert: evidently there is!) “And evidently there is,” he cheekily continued. Get ready for Wonka 2: The Quest for More Chocolate!
The man behind the director’s chair, Paul, is all about it too. He exclaimed, “I’d love to” make a sequel. Can you imagine the brainstorming sessions in a room filled with Oompa Loompas and chocolate rivers?
So, mark your calendars, set your chocolate fountains to maximum flow, because Wonka is hitting theaters on December 15, and who knows, maybe there’s a golden sequel ticket waiting just around the corner! Willy Wonka, the gift that keeps on giving – and not just in everlasting gobstoppers!
