A young Willy Wonka will be the subject of the much-awaited new movie Wonka, which will take place before the events of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Paul King is the film’s director, and he and Simon Farnaby are its writers. Since Johnny Depp’s portrayal of Willy Wonka in the 2005 movie, we haven’t seen him on screen until now. Before then, Gene Wilder played the part in 1971. However, both of these depicted Wonka after he already had the chocolate factory, so in the future movie, we’ll see him before that. Here is all we currently know about the Wonka: Release Date, cast and everything.
