His co-star in the movie Keegan-Michael Key offered up some high praise in a new interview.
No movie intrigues and haunts us more than the upcoming Timothée Chalamet movie musical Wonka: an origin story for the famed fictional chocolatier with a penchant for theatrical showcases and a disregard for safeguarding children. And while the film is currently in post-production limbo, preparing for its release in December 2023, one of the film’s stars has given us a little bit information as to what we can expect from it, and Timothée’s performance.
Thanks to Twitter, on-set fan sleuthing has given us a glimpse at Wonka’s stunning costuming and Victorian-era set pieces that have sent social media into a frenzy, as we all collectively try to decipher the mood of the movie. But the biggest clue as to what we might expect when the film hits cinemas Christmas 2023, was from attendees at Warner Bros’ Cinemacon, who were treated to a short clip from the upcoming movie.
What’s the plot of Wonka?
Who stars in Wonka?
Who is the team behind it?
Have their been other on-set spottings?
When Ms Omicron came for everybody’s ass in December 2021, including the whole set of Timothée Chalamet’s Wonka movie, production shut down just before Christmas last year before resuming at Oxford University at the beginning of 2022. When it did, die hard stans flocked to the set to catch a glimpse of TC in full regalia taking pictures and TikToks as they went.
Now we’ve seen a few other stars on set, like Calah Lane, we’re guessing Wonka could be a period piece. Tutors and students are hypothesising what all the fuss could be about.
According to passers by and members of the crew, apparently Timmy was shooting in a green boat (could he be coming or going somewhere? Oompa Loompa land?!) and by a shed on the pier, which had been doused in fake snow. And then, alas! A few hours later, Timmy jumped on social media to reveal the first photo from the set. Art recognised it immediately.
What is Wonka’s release date?
Warner Bros have a long plan in place for this, and though the Omicron related delay has shifted production from its original 17 March 2023 release date, we can now reportedly expect to see Wonka just in time for Christmas when it now hits cinemas on 15 December 2023.
