WONKA | Official Trailer : Starring Timothée Chalamet, Hugh Grant, Keegan-Michael Key, Rowan Atkinson, Sally Hawkins, Olivia Colman

Warner Brothers has dropped a new trailer for a highly anticipated Christmas film, “Wonka,” giving us our best look yet at Timothée Chalamet’s take on the classic character from Roald Dahl.

In April, Warner Bros. released the first footage of “Wonka to CinemaCon attendees, but the public has yet to see anything official from the film until now. 

Wonka” serves as the prequel to the beloved Charlie and the Chocolate Factory story as focused on a young Willy Wonka and how he met the Oompa-Loompas on one of his earliest adventures. 

The new movie was written and directed by Paul King. Even though we don’t get any songs in the trailer, King promised that Wonka will feature song and dance performances, including original songs by Neil Hannon of The Divine Comedy and spins on classic songs such as ‘Pure Imagination’.

And while the trailer doesn’t have these songs, it does at least end with a hilarious introduction to Hugh Grant’s Oompa Loompa in the movie. Hugh Grant continues to be having the best time onscreen.

“I will have you know that I am a perfectly respectable size for an Oompa Loompa,” he says before whipping out his piccolo to signal a classic Oompa Loompa tune. “Too late. I’ve started dancing now,” he adds.

“Once we’ve started, we can’t stop.”

Wonka also boasts a stellar cast includes Keegan-Michael Key, Rowan Atkinson, Sally Hawkins, Olivia Colman, Paterson Joseph, Mathew Baynton and Matt Lucas.

Colman, who plays a villain in the movie, praised Chalamet’s performance as Willy Wonka in December 2022: “He’s doing something different. It’s such a treat. He’s so beautiful on-screen. He’s magical.” “Wonka” will be released in cinemas on December 15.
