Version of 

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) (Video Game)

Spin-off 

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) (Video Game)

References 

The Wizard of Oz (1939)
When Willy opens the door to reveal the inside of the factory to the five kids and their guardians, the change from the pale colors outside of the factory to the bright, overly saturated world of the factory is an homage to Dorothy entering the land of Oz.
Million Dollar Mermaid (1952)
Oompa Loompa synchronized swimming musical number
House of Wax (1953)
The part of the Wonka Welcome song where the animatronics start catching fire and melting is similar to the scene from House Of Wax where Vincent Price's Wax statues catch on fire and melt.
Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959)
The Oompa Loompa's salute Willy Wonka in the same manner as the Plan 9 aliens salute their leader.
Ben-Hur (1959)
When the Oompa Loompas are rowing the pink dragon boat, there is a cut to an Oompa Loompa banging a drum. This is a reference to Ben-Hur when the slaves are chained to a boat and are rowing with oars and the camera cuts to a man banging a drum.
Psycho (1960)
The footage of the shower head in the Mike Teavee song was the same exact shower head from Psycho
The Addams Family (1964) (TV Series)
Having experimented with a hair growth formula, one Oompa loompa looks and sounds like Cousin It
The Exorcist (1973)
In the end of the movie, Violet takes on the the same pose as the girl in the Exorcist when she was possessed by Satan.
Hair (1979)
Wonka says "Good Morning, Starshine. The Earth Says Hello."
La soupe aux choux (1981)
Johnny Depp imitates (and pays hommage to) the sound done by the extra-terrestrial in "La soupe aux choux".
Beetlejuice (1988)
The dance that Mike Teavee does is a reference to Lydia's own dance.
Batman (1989)
Charlie's dad produces a toothpaste called "Smilex" - the name of the poisonous gas used by the Joker in Batman
Edward Scissorhands (1990)
The first glimpse of Willy Wonka, he is cutting the ribbon to his new factory. He turns around and alludes to two previous Burton/Depp films: his hand is consumed by a large pair of scissors, much like Edward Scissorhands, and his eyes are covered with bizarre glasses, much like those in Sleepy Hollow.
Ed Wood (1994)
Pink-wooled sheep being shaved refrences 'Ed Wood' (1994) and the title character's pink angora sweaters.
Sleepy Hollow (1999)
The bizarre glasses that Wonka wears upon first meeting the children reference similar ones seen in Burton/Depp's Sleepy Hollow.
