In Theaters December 15: Wonka

By Kat La Mantia | December 6 2023 | Pop CultureBlogAdultsChildren'sGeneralAll

The buzz for Wonka is growing! Though it’s not out in theaters yet, early reviewers are already singing its praises, and the movie is set to be one of December’s must-see releases. Wonka is the musical origin story of the classic Willy Wonka character in his early days as a budding chocolatier. Starring Timothée Chalamet as a young Wonka, this film is a great re-introduction to the world of Roald Dahl and Willy Wonka for new audiences, with a sweeter, sillier take on the character than previous darker versions.

Check out a clip from the the movie below, and explore our Wonka and Roald Dahl books to revisit the magical world of Willy Wonka before the movie comes out on December 15!
