“Oompa Loompa doopity doo, I’ve got a perfect puzzle for you…”
I’LL BE GOOD. I PROMISE. I CAN CHANGE.
…I mean…who said that?
Let’s be really honest though, how many of you are still waiting for your golden ticket?
Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory was the stuff of magic back in the day. Children across the globe were lining their shelves with Roald Dahl’s 1964 iconic children’s fantasy novel: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
That book taught us kids a lot and not just that Augustus Gloop’s love of food gets more relatable with age.
If you didn’t read the book, you most likely watched the movie.
Or should I say movies, after a remake of the original Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory (1971) came out in 2005 – starring none other than Hollywood Hunk Johnny Depp.
Charlie, Veruca, Augustus, Mike and Violet were the five lucky kids that got to enter the mysterious chocolate factory and meet the ever more mysterious Mr Wonka.
So after 46 years, what are the cast up to these days?
