La suya es una vieja casa diminuta, destartalada y con corrientes de aire, pero está llena de amor. Todas las noches, lo último que Charlie ve desde su ventana es la gran fábrica, y se queda dormido soñando con lo que habrá dentro. Desde hace casi quince años, nadie ha visto entrar o salir de la fábrica a un solo trabajador, y tampoco han visto al propio Willy Wonka (Johnny Depp), y sin embargo, misteriosamente, se siguen elaborando grandes cantidades de chocolate que se envían a tiendas de todo el mundo. Un día Willy Wonka hace un anuncio trascendental. Abrirá su famosa fábrica y revelará "todos sus secretos y su magia" a cinco afortunados niños que encuentren unos billetes dorados escondidos en el interior de cinco chocolatinas Wonka elegidas al azar. Nada haría más feliz a la familia de Charlie que verle ganar, pero tiene muy pocas posibilidades, ya que sólo se pueden permitir comprar una chocolatina al año, para su cumpleaños."--La Butaca web site
