Dorothy Gale is swept away from a farm in Kansas to a magical land of Oz in a tornado and embarks on a quest with her new friends to see the Wizard who can help her return home to Kansas and help her friends as well.
The scientist father of a teenage girl and boy accidentally shrinks his and two other neighborhood teens to the size of insects. Now the teens must fight diminutive dangers as the father searches for them.
The world is astounded when Willy Wonka, for years a recluse in his factory, announces that five lucky people will be given a tour of the factory, shown all the secrets of his amazing candy, and one will win a lifetime supply of Wonka chocolate. Nobody wants the prize more than young Charlie, but as his family is so poor that buying even one bar of chocolate is a treat, buying enough bars to find one of the five golden tickets is unlikely in the extreme. But in movieland, magic can happen. Charlie, along with four somewhat odious other children, get the chance of a lifetime and a tour of the factory. Along the way, mild disasters befall each of the odious children, but can Charlie beat the odds and grab the brass ring?Written by

Peter Ostrum went through puberty during the film. This is evident as voice is high during the duet of "I've Got a Golden Ticket", and is much deeper later in the film, such as during the bubble scene. See more »
When Mr. Turkentine is giving the class a math lesson, he says that 100 is 10% of 1000 then says that 150 is 10% half over again, making that number 15% of 1000. Then he says that 200 is 15% half over again. 200 is 20% of 1000. If it were 15% half over again, it would be 22.5%, not 20%. See more »

At the same time as the end credits are playing, the film shows the Wonkavator rising higher and higher. See more »
In the TV version that aired on ABC in 2001, the "Cheer up Charlie" song was cut out. In the same version, the computer that could tell exactly where the golden tickets were was edited out. See more »
"If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it." Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory is one of the best children films of all-time. The characters, you all have to adore, even if their annoying or not. The film is about a boy who finds a golden ticket in a Willy Wonka chocolate bar and heads off to see the Willy Wonka factory with his grandpa and other people. Gene Wilder was great as Willy Wonka and his performance was quite funny and actually kind of weird. The kids were all great especially Augustus Gloop, he was hilarious. Overall, Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory is a classic and should be viewed by everyone.
