Be ready for a new side of Willy Wonka you’ve never seen before! It has just been announced that a new Willy Wonka movie is in the works. The film is set to premiere in 2023 and Timothee Chalamet will be playing young Willy Wonka. The movie is set before Willy Wonka opened his successful chocolate factory. The prequel will have many musical scenes; this is the first time we will see the Oscar nominee show off his singing and dancing.  

Over the past few years, Timothee Chalamet has made a name for himself, starring in many different movies. One of his most known roles was in the 2017 movie Call Me By Your Name, where Timothee played Elio Perlman. Timothee Chalamet’s newest film, Dune, is premiering on October 22, 2021. This is his first blockbuster movie, and fans are super excited to see the film.  

Timothee Chalamet went on Instagram and posted a sneak peek of his new character to fans! This made everyone more excited for the movie. Looking at the picture, Timothee looks like a young Willy Wonka.  

It was challenging to set a time to start filming Willy Wonka with all of his filming schedules. He was the top choice to star in this movie for some time, so filming waited till his schedule opened up. The filming of the movie started on September 29. The movie is currently being filmed in London, England.  

Timothee Chalamet has a lot to live up to, as the past two movies were terrific, but I am sure he will do a fantastic job as he has done with all of his past roles. It will be interesting to see what Willy Wonka was up to before opening his chocolate factory. What are you most excited about the New Willy Wonka prequel?
