A brand new set video has found its way online from Warner Bros.’s upcoming Willy Wonka prequel film. Just recently Timothée Chalamet shared an image of his outfit before photos leaked from their work on set as they entered production. Surprisingly, Twitter user @_ARTSARTSARTS was able to catch a glimpse of the actor on set. Not just that, he even took a video of him singing one of the songs for the upcoming film. As a small glimpse into the musical, the song already gives us a nice tease of what we can expect.
Paddington‘s Paul King is tackling the film for Warner Bros. and it’s currently eyeing a release in March 2023. Chalamet will be joined by Rowan Atkinson, Olivia Colman, Jim Carter, and Sally Hawkins as they explore the early days of Wonka. The adaptation will see the time when Willy Wonka built his famous chocolate factory long before the 1964 novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory took place. The actor has paid tribute to Gene Wilder‘s famous line in his last post and his design does seem to take inspiration from the 1971 version of the character. As the Tim Burton version of the character also explored his origin, it’ll be interesting to see how this story stands out in comparison.
