Willy Wonka Johnny Depp

Nineteen-year-old Alice returns to the magical world from her childhood adventure, where she reunites with her old friends and learns of her true destiny: to end the Red Queen's reign of terror.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a 2005 musical fantasy film directed by Tim Burton and written by John August , based on the 1964 British book of the same name by Roald Dahl . The film stars Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka and Freddie Highmore as Charlie Bucket. The storyline concerns Charlie, who wins a contest and is, along with four other contest winners, subsequently led by Wonka on a tour of his chocolate factory; the most magnificent in the world.

Willy Wonka is a fictional character in Roald Dahl 's 1964 children's novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory , its sequel Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator , and the film adaptations of these books that followed.

The statement is a bit incongruous with his career, which features almost exclusively classic comedy films like Blazing Saddles, The Producers, and Young Frankenstein.
