Come with me…and you’ll be… in a world of pure imagination…

I’m not sure that I can sufficiently express my excitement at the prospect of this film being released. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is one of my favorite films of all time, and while I’m a bit concerned about remaking it (Gene Wilder is nearly perfect in the role…just a wonder of a performance) if anyone can pull it off it’s Depp. Burton can be a bit heavy handed at times, but this is definitely up his stylistic alley. As long as the psychedelia is included, and those rotten kids get what they deserve (esp. Veruca!) I’ll be sitting in the theater, face covered in chocolate.

With Johnny Depp as Wonka, and Burton directing … well, I’m exciting. I can’t see where it wouldn’t be wondrous, and just a tad creepy, which is just how it should be. And now you have “The Candy Man” tune stuck in my head. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was one of my favorite books growing up, and the movie caused me to be frightened of Oompa Loompas at a very young age. 😉
