    Willy soon starts selling chocolates to the poor people in the town at affordable prices. This angers the rich, greedy, and entitled men of the town who try to intimidate and attack Wonka. They forbade Wonka to sell his chocolates in the town but he is certainly in no mood to stop. Take a look at the same.

    No sooner was the trailer released than fans also started praising the same. One of the fans stated, “I may be alone in saying this. But, as “campy” as this looks at times, I really feel like THIS is the type of film that is desperately needed right now. Lighthearted, upbeat, colorful and optimistic. I will absolutely be seeing this opening weekend.” A netizen added, “I have to say it was bold of them to have kept this film within the continuity and design of the original film with Gene WIlder, which Roald Dahl hated. Regardless, it is a timeless classic to those of us whose hearts it stole and whose waistlines have suffered for it ever since.” The movie has been directed by Paul King and also stars Rowan Atkinson, Sally Hawkins, Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Colman, and Natasha Rothwell in the lead roles.
