Speaking with Total Film, director Paul King did not rule out that Wonka could win a sequel.
“I would definitely like to do more. And I would like to spend more time in this world.”
The filmmaker added, “Dahl was definitely interested in showing more of Willy Wonka. There are drafts that did not really lead anywhere and there is a short story. He didn’t really write sequels, but this was the only book in which he clearly felt that there was more in the tank. There are many more Wonka stories that we would like to tell.
It’s not like Dune: Part one, where you say ‘’That’s what happens in the second part.”I hope it works perfectly as an independent film. But I would definitely like to do more. And I would like to spend more time in this world and get to know more Oompa Loompas.”
Wonka is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures and is scheduled to be released on December 14.
We know that the action takes place in the twentieth century, with Wonka working hard at the beginning of his career to establish himself as the number one chocolatier in the world.
The main cast consists of Timothée Chalamet (Dune) as Wonka, Hugh Grant (Crime Magnates) as Oompa Lompa, Olivia Colman (The Crown), Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water) and Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean).
Willy Wonka was a character who appeared in the book The Fantastic Chocolate Factory, published by Roald Dahl in 1964. Occasionally, the chocolatier has already built a successful empire and opens the gates of his factory for the inspection of a group of people.
But Willy is a unique character, and when the children plunge headlong into all their cravings for sweets in this place, they pay a price for it.
