Popcorn Culture - Review: Wonka

Did we need a whole movie about Willy Wonka's backstory? Probably not, but it's hard to be cynical about anything by Paul King, director of the heartwarming smash hits, Paddington and Paddington 2. Starring Timothee Chalamet as a young Willy Wonka and Hugh Grant as an Oompa-Loompa, the movie aims to explain how an ordinary man with big dreams became the eccentric owner of the world's most legendary chocolate factory. In this episode, we review Wonka and discuss if it works as a prequel, the stacked cast and their performances, and if this will eventually become a new Willy Wonka franchise.
