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

At the end of the Wonkamobile ride, Charlie asks "Hey Grandpa, what was that we just went through?" to which Willy Wonka supposedly answers "Hsaw aknow." This is supposed to be "Wonka wash" spelled backwards, but he actually says "Hsaw akanow", which would be "Wonaka wash" spelled backwards. See more »

At the same time as the end credits are playing, the film shows the Wonkavator rising higher and higher. See more »
In some versions of the movie, during the boat scene, the part where the chicken gets its head cut off in the background was cut out. Also in this version, in the same scene, when Slugworth's head appears, Charlie says something like "Grampa, that was Slugworth!" and Grampa Joe just stares back for a few seconds. 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.
