Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (movie)

2005 film by Tim Burton

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a 2005 movie adaptation of the 1964 book of the same name by Roald Dahl. The movie was directed by Tim Burton.

The movie stars Freddie Highmore as Charlie Bucket, David Kelly as Grandpa Joe, and Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka. The storyline concerns Charlie, who takes a tour he has won, led by Wonka, through the most magnificent chocolate factory in the world.
