In the newest "Willy Wonka'" movie, we find out how he became the world's most eccentric chocolate factory owner.
The prequel Wonka is set to start filming in September and will come out in 2023.
Timothee Chalamat is set to follow in the footsteps in Gene Wilder and Johnny Depp in the role of Willy Wonka.
The new film will be a musical and will "focus on a young Willy Wonka and his adventures.”
Chalamat, who will appear in the "Dune" remake this fall, has long been producers' first choice for the role of Wonka and he signed a deal last week.
