Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory: Celebrating 50 Years Reuniting the Kid Cast
Tuesday June 30 marks the 50th Anniversary of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and for the first time, Warner Brothers is releasing the film on 4K disc.
To celebrate both occasions, we reunited the living cast and chatted with Peter Ostrum (“Charlie Bucket”), Paris Themman (“Mike Teevee”), Julie Dawn Cole (“Veruca Salt”) and Michael Bollner (“Augustus Gloop”)!
Directed by Mel Stuart and starring Gene Wilder as the legendary Candy Man Willy Wonka, this
splendiferous movie brings to the screen the endlessly appetizing delights of Roald Dahl’s cherished
book. Coated with flavorful tunes and production designs that are a visual treat for the eyes, this
effervescent musical never fails to enchant young and old. On a whirlwind tour of Willy’s incredible,
edible realm of chocolate waterfalls, elfish Oompa-Loompas and industrial-sized confections, a boy
named Charlie will discover the sweetest secret of all: a generous, loving heart. And
viewers will rediscover all the timeless magic as it was meant to be seen.
