  • Overview
    The story concerns a famous sweet factory owned by Willy Wonka which has been closed for many years as his employees were stealing his secret recipes and passing them onto competitors. However, the factory has started working again but noone has seen any employees enter or come out. Willy Wonka announces a competition for 5 lucky winners who find golden tickets in his chocolate bars to visit the factory. There is a frenzy to get hold of these tickets and 5 children win: Augustus Gloop, Veruca Salt, Violet Beauregarde, Tim Teavee and Charlie Bucket who comes from a very poor family. The 5 children go to the factory with a guardian and go on a tour with the eccentric Willy Wonka seeing all the sweets being made wi th the help of the umpa lumpas - a race of miniature people. Each child comes to a sticky end as they fall prey to their wicked traits: greedy Augustus falls into the chocolate lake as he tries to drink and disappears up a tube; Veruca gets dragged away by the squirrels as she tries to get one; Violet baloons in size and turns blue as she eats some prototype gum; Tim becomes tiny as he tries to transport himself onto TV, leaving the good, honest Charlie to win the competition and inherit the factory from Willy Wonka, changing his family's life for the better
