According to a Variety story, Warner Bros appears to have shuffled certain release dates, and the eagerly awaited Wonka is one among the movies on the list. The release date of the Timothée Chalamet-starring Willy Wonka movie has been changed from March 17 to December 15 of 2023.
When It Might Come
The pandemic-related production delays are the cause of many of the delays and release date adjustments. This is true for f The Flash, Aquaman, and the Lost Kingdom. The precise justification behind Wonka’s revised release date is yet unknown.
A Rich History
With Gene Wilder portraying Willy Wonka in the timeless 1971 film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the character of Willy Wonka has a long and illustrious history in cinema. In the Tim Burton picture Charlie and the Chocolate Factory from 2005, Johnny Depp also played the top-hatted chocolatier. Both films continue to be revered as independent classics and provide an endless supply of inspiration for memes and image macros.
However, the character first appears in the beloved 1964 Roald Dahl book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, not the movie. And the new Origins movie will draw the most of its inspiration from this material. But like the 1971 movie, the new one will also be a musical with lyrics penned by Neil Hannon that are certain to transport audiences into a realm of unbridled imagination.
