Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka follows the enigmatic candy manufacturer Willy Wonka as he stages a contest by hiding five golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whoever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka factory, as well as a lifetime supply of chocolate. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats, while the fifth is a likeable young boy named Charlie Bucket who takes the tour in the company of his amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka’s rules in the factory – or suffer the consequences. Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka will take audiences on a fantasy ride into a land of pure imagination!
