#HolidayGiftGuide - Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory 40th Anniversary Edition



Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory 40th Anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack will be available October 18!
Also available digitally via On Demand and For Download.

Okay, I have a confession to make...
I have never watched the entire Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory Movie.
I know, I must be one of the few, or maybe the only one...

To go one step further, I had never really known about the Oompa Loompa's until I moved to Atlanta and heard people talking about them.. (So I googled it!)
Marc has watched the movie I don't know how many times and I believe that the boys watched with him... I was always doing stuff when movies started. You know, cleaning the kitchen, cooking supper, washing clothes, bathing Broxton... I have seen bits and pieces, but never the whole thing...
I was excited when I was sent the Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory 40th Anniversary DVD for review. I tell you now, I have been trying to be nice and not open it until the boys come, but I am starting to think that I need to open it now!!!
I want to see it!

Synopsis:

Join the expedition visiting legendary Candy Man Willy Wonka (Gene Wilder) in a splendiferous movie that wondrously brings to the screen the endlessly appetizing delights of Roald Dahl’s classic book. Coated with flavorful tunes and production design that constantly dazzles the eye, this effervescent musical never fails to enchant young and old. On a whirlwind tour of Willy’s incredible, edible realm of chocolate waterfalls, elfish Oompa-Loompas and industrial-sized confections, a boy named Charlie (Peter Ostrum) will discover the sweetest secret of all: a generous, loving heart. And you’ll rediscover the timeless magic of a delicious family classic.

  1. I can't believe you've never seen it! I think every teacher at my school showed this movie every single year. It really is a cute movie and the children love it!

  2. I like the movie, but I have to be honest: I think the beginning drags a bit. Sometimes I fast forward to when they go into the chocolate factory.
