About this deal

The single-disc version of the film included two special features: an Oompa-Loompa dance tutorial and "Becoming Oompa-Loompa", which documented Deep Roy's experience on the production. Burton compared the project's languishing development to Batman (1989), which he directed, in how there had been varied creative efforts with both films. According to Depp, "the hair I imagined as a kind of Prince Valiant do, high bangs and a bob, extreme and very unflattering but something that Wonka probably thinks is cool because he's been locked away for such a long time and doesn't know any better, like the outdated slang he uses. Certain items can take longer to source than the estimated week, particularly during busy trading periods and may take longer to arrive at our warehouse.

All four songs utilize lyrics direct from Roald Dahl's book; as such, the lyrics are credited to Dahl. After overhearing that the final ticket was found in Russia, Charlie finds a banknote and purchases a third Wonka Bar. A Blu-ray release followed in October 2011, followed by a 10th anniversary Blu-ray release in March 2015.

Synopsis: A poor little boy wins a ticket to visit the inside of a mysterious andmagical chocolate factory. It was Depp's intention to portray the character in a completely different way from Gene Wilder in the 1971 film adaptation.

In addition to the Oompa-Loompa songs, Elfman created an entire underscore for the film being based around three primary themes: a gentle family theme for the Buckets, generally set in upper woodwinds; a mystical, string-driven waltz for Willy Wonka; and a hyper-upbeat factory theme for full orchestra, Elfman's homemade synthesizer samples and the diminutive chanting voices of the Oompa-Loompas.Development for a second adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory began in 1991, which resulted in Warner Bros. That was a disappointment for me as a kid, being not a patch on the book, so I've never had a desire to see any other movies. Willy Wonka-themed chocolate bars were sold, and a Golden Ticket contest was launched as part of the film's marketing campaign.

With no prior professional dancing experience, each musical number involving Roy took a month to rehearse and six months in total to film. The squirrels were then given props and taught how to sit upon a bar stool, tap and then open a walnut, and deposit its meat onto a conveyor belt.Conversely, Time Out named it the worst adaptation of a Roald Dahl book, elaborating "there's something so horribly garish about Burton's film that you can't help feeling a little queasy afterwards. The studio reiterated their interest in May 2003; [9] however, the idea was postponed by the time filming began in June 2004. Wilder was appreciative towards Depp's comments, but expressed skepticism toward Burton's production, questioning it as a remake made for profit.
