Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory
Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory tells the story of poor Charlie Bucket. In the town where Charlie lives stands the chocolate factory of Willy Wonka (played by Gene Wilder), the best candy producer in the world. The factory has been closed to outsiders for years, until Wonka opens the factory to five people who find the golden wrapper around one of his chocolate bars. By chance, Charlie finds money on the street, from which he buys two Wonka chocolate bars. You guessed it: one has a golden wrapper. Charlie is invited to visit the chocolate factory, where he meets Willy Wonka and has the craziest adventures.
