Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory [G]


Parents, you'll love re-living this 1971 classic through your kids. Candy-maker Willy Wonka (Gene Wilder) has been a recluse for years, so the world is astounded when he makes his grand announcement that he's holding a contest. Five golden tickets have been hidden in chocolate bars around the globe for five lucky people to find. The winners get a tour of his factory and a lifetime supply of Wonka chocolate bars.

After a few failed attempts and in a stroke of incredible luck, poor and sweet Charlie Bucket (Peter Ostrum) wins a ticket and embarks on the tour with his grandfather. Along the way, he meets a crew of colorful characters, and a wondrous world of endless imagination. Nothing could have prepared him for the golden prize that awaits.
