About the Event
WFTV members are invited to this online conversation with Wonka Special Effects Supervisor, Hayley Williams.
There will be an opportunity to ask Hayley questions during the last 15 minutes of the session.
Based on the extraordinary, iconic character at the center of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, one of the best-selling children’s books of all time, Wonka tells the wondrous story of how a young chocolate-maker, armed with nothing but a hatful of dreams, manages to change the world, one delectable bite at a time.
From Paul King, writer/director of the Paddington films, David Heyman, producer of Harry Potter, Gravity, Barbie and Paddington, and producers Alexandra Derbyshire (the Paddington films, Jurassic World: Dominion) and Luke Kelly (Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical), comes an intoxicating mix of magic and music, mayhem and emotion, all told with fabulous heart and humor. Starring Timothée Chalamet in the title role, this irresistibly vivid and inventive big screen spectacle will introduce audiences to a young Willy Wonka, as he becomes the world’s greatest inventor, magician and chocolate-maker.
