Directed by the maker of the Paddington movies, this musical fantasy is a prequel to the events in Roald Dahl's story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It is set 25 years before that film, and pays homage to classic European story books, as well as featuring many characters inspired by other Dahl stories.

With dreams of opening a shop in a European city renowned for its chocolate, a young and poor Willy Wonka discovers that the industry is run by a cartel of greedy chocolatiers.

Awards:  1 BAFTA nomination, 1 Golden Globe nomination
