The Internet Is Collectively Thirsting After Timothée Chalamet Reveals First Look As Willy Wonka



Timothée Chalamet is still basking in the golden reviews for his Dune. The actor received raving words for his part in the sci-fi that has fans and critics in awe. Needless to say, he has given the internet a lot to talk about with his stint as Paul Atreides. In fact, he has no plans of stopping. How? Because Chalamet just blessed the inter-web and revealed the first look of himself as Willy Wonka from the prequel in works. Titled as Wonka, the origin movie is based on Roald Dahl’s 1964 children’s book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and will take on Wonka’s life and days of youth before he became the eccentric candymaker. Obviously fans were excited to see him don the hot, quite literally, and step into the shoes of actors like Gene Wilder and Johnny Depp who previously played the part.

And although the film takes place before the events of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, stan accounts are holding their breath to see Chalamet dancing and singing on screen; it is being said that it is a musical. And now, with the reveal, they are over the moon. Posing right next to a camera, Chalamet looks delicious (sorry for the pun) in the BTS picture where he can be seen wearing a cravat, velvet coat, and the signature Wonka top hat!

Phir kya? The picture has become the talk of the town with Twitter thirsting over Chalamet’s look that is closer to the aesthetic of the Tim Burton directorial. Not just that, it has a different sect reminiscing the old days and debating who is the best Willy Wonka – Timothée Chalamet, Johnny Depp or Gene Wilder! See for yourself.

Recently Peter Ostrum who played Charlie Bucket and was part of the original cast of 1971’s Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory told PEOPLE that the cast is looking forward to new rendition as “the prequel will shed more light on early Wonka.” “But again, there’s been so many different versions of Willy Wonka, be it on Broadway, opera, a pinball machine … you can’t kill the Willy Wonka story.”

Meanwhile, three more actors including Rowan Atkinson, Sally Hawkins, and Olivia Colman will have joined the ensemble of Keegan-Michael Key, Tom Davis, Simon Farnaby, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith, Mathew Baynton, Jim Carter, and Rich Fulcher.

It is being produced by David Heyman, written by Simon Rich and directed by Paul King of Paddington fame. Wonka is slated for theatrical release on March 17, 2023.
