Warner Bros.'s new musical movie 'Wonka' world premiere on Tuesday night at the Royal Festival Hall in London. Big names like Hugh Grant, Olivia Colman, Keegan-Michael Key, Sally Hawkins, Rowan Atkinson, and newbie Calah Lane all play young Willy Wonka in the movie.
The event was full of famous people, and Chalamet and Grant were the first ones to walk the red carpet. Grant wore a standard tuxedo, and Chalamet looked sharp in a pink velvet suit. There were also Colman, Key, Hawkins, Atkinson, and Lane there.

For the world premiere of Warner Bros.' musical Wonka on Tuesday, London's Royal Festival Hall was turned into a holiday version of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory.
At the event, Timothée Chalamet, who plays Willy Wonka, signed autographs and posed for selfies on a red carpet adorned with huge cotton candy clouds and jars of sweets for more than an hour. Hugh Grant, Olivia Colman, Keegan-Michael Key, Sally Hawkins, Rowan Atkinson, and newbie Calah Lane were all there with him.
The movie comes before Roald Dahl's famous book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It shows how Willy Wonka got started and how he came to make his amazing chocolate factory. The director, who wrote the script with Simon Farnaby, who worked with him on Paddington, Paul King said:
Our cast is like a box of the most beautiful chocolates.- Paul King
A lot of times, the director has said nice things about his star's singing voice, even comparing him to Bing Crosby.
There’s quite a range because it does go from a couple of bigger, showstopper-y sort of things, to moments of real, pure emotion, and he can do it all... I’m going to sound like a crazed fan.- Paul King
Warner Bros. threw a special party at the Tate Modern museum after the screening as well. The film's cast and team, as well as other famous people and VIPs, went to the party.
Fans and critics were confused when they saw the trailer for Willy Wonka for the first time. A prequel movie about a young Willy Wonka (played by Timothée Chalamet of Manic Pixie Dream Boy) seemed like a mix of an interesting look at how bad guys got their start and yet another shady attempt to make money off of existing ideas.
The video quickly split fans because it showed a fantastical world and cast Hugh Grant as an Oompa Loompa, which some people found strange. Willy Wonka is, after all, a difficult person. He is both a "proto-Jigsaw," as our Britt Hayes calls him, and a cruel morality trap/candy machine that punishes kids. Then there's the bad habit of colonizing Loompaland and taking all of its people to work in his plant.
But Wonka's secret tool is without a doubt Paul King, who directed and co-wrote the movie. King wrote and directed Paddington and Paddington 2, two of the best-reviewed and most-loved family movies of the 2010s.
The movie is 18 years after Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, in which Depp played the lead part. It is also made by Warner Bros., who later bought the rights to the character in 2016.
A lot of Wonka was filmed at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden, which is just outside of London. Other scenes were filmed in Oxford and Bath, among other places in the UK.
Wonka will come out on December 8 in the UK and on December 15 in the US.

Final Words

A lot of big stars wore sweet, bright, and colorful clothes to the "Wonka" world opening in London on Tuesday night. One of them was the star actor, Timothée Chalamet, who showed up in a Tom Ford suit made of magenta velvet that looked like candy and wore Cartier jewelry. The movie, which comes out in theaters on December 15, tells the magical story of Willy Wonka, who is the main character in Roald Dahl's "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory." Here are some looks from the opening that show how the other stars wore their clothes.
