Long before he owned his iconic Chocolate Factory, the young Willy Wonka (Timothée Chalamet, Little Women) was an aspiring inventor and innovative confectionary wizard.

Drawing crowds on the streets of London thanks to his magical gift for chocolate making, his entrepreneurial flair soon catches the attention of the dastardly Chocolate Cartel (Matt Lucas, Alice in Wonderland, Mathew Baynton, Horrible Histories and Paterson Joseph, Peep Show), who plot to bring an end to Wonka’s escapades.

Unwavering in his determination to open the greatest chocolate shop the world has ever seen, Willy sets on an unforgettable journey that will make him the stuff of legend – with the help of his spirited friend Noodle (Calah Lane) and a heroic Oompa Loompa called Lofty (Hugh Grant, Paddington 2).

Brought to the screen by the ingenious creative team behind the Paddington films (director Paul King and screenwriter Simon Farnaby), this wondrous musical blockbuster features irresistible original songs by The Divine Comedy’s Neil Hannon, and stars a who’s-who of British acting talent, including Olivia Colman, Sally Hawkins and Rowan Atkinson.

Don’t miss out on a golden ticket to this Christmas’ must-see cinematic event – take a look, and you’ll see into your imagination…
