Are you still on the fence about whether or not you want to check out Wonka next month? Here are three clips that may help you make that decision.
- 3 new clips from ‘Wonka’ showcase the film’s tone and humor, hinting at what’s in store.
- Director Paul King’s touch is evident in the whimsical scenes featuring bad guys and chocolate.
- The footage includes a chocolate experiment and an Oompa-Loompa encounter.
- As ‘Wonka’ gears up for its theater release, these clips could sway your decision to see it.
We’ve been saying from the moment that Wonka was announced that we have no idea if this is going to work one way or another. If there is one reason to have any faith in this, it’s director Paul King. The trailers have been doing an okay job of telling us what this movie will be like, but now we have three clips that seem to show off the tone and humor. One of which includes three of the bad guys trying chocolate that isn’t basic and said chocolate blowing their minds, Noodle trying chocolate for the first time, and Willy capturing the Oompa-Loompa who has been following him around. So if you’re still on the fence about this one, and I don’t really blame you considering the concept and everything else, maybe these clips can help be the deciding factor about whether or not you want to check this movie out when it’s in theaters in a month.

Based on the extraordinary character at the center of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Roald Dahl’s most iconic children’s book and one of the best-selling children’s books of all time, Wonka tells the wondrous story of how the world’s greatest inventor, magician and chocolate-maker became the beloved Willy Wonka we know today.
