The tuba is crumpled, the frock coat is made of burgundy velvet, the trousers are pinstriped and he, with a dreamy look, shows off the most magical of smiles by offering you a chocolate egg that makes you fly or move or laugh or makes you call your school love on the phone to say that you have not forgotten it. There is great anticipation for Wonka, the prequel about the origins of the Candy Man of Roald Dahl's masterpiece The Chocolate Factory, with a cast super led by Timothée Chalamet. Visually delightful, the film, directed by Paul King, will have a billion-dollar box office worldwide according to industry forecasts, bringing big and small to the cinema for the holidays. In Italy from December 14 it will be in theaters with Warner Bros. There is sugar in spades in the film and not only because it is the story of how Willy became Wonka, but because at the base of everything there is that "every beautiful thing in the world began with a dream" and "love is all we need", For children, but now also for adults, this is a way to continue to believe in beauty.

The Chocolate Factory is one of the most iconic and best-selling children's novels of all time, Wonka goes backwards by telling the dream of the magical chocolatier. You are with your eyes open to wonders, you have fun and you are moved in this Wonka by Paul King that aims at emotion and meanwhile puts joy into a musical. Chalamet, the beloved young actor launched by Luca Guadagnino in Call Me By Your Name, is the irresistible protagonist but next to him he has a super cast. There's the Oscar winner Olivia Colman (the evil Mrs. Scrubitt), the Oscar nominee Sally Hawkins sweet Wonka's mother, Hugh Grant hilarious Umpa Lumpa, Rowan Atkinson corrupt chocolate priest and then Calah Lane, Keegan-Michael Key, Joseph Paterson, Matt Lucas, Mathew Baynton, Jim Carter, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith. Wonka's coming-of-age is wide-open eyes full of hope and optimism – saving drops for today's world. "In the beginning," King said, "he's a young man who arrives in this strange city, a magical and mystical place. And he comes with a very clear vision of what he wants the future to be, and that he believes is possible... And so he won't take 'no' for an answer. His is determination and faith in the impossible. I'm convinced that you don't become a great inventor without a strong sense of determination." Chalamet, who had a guardian angel in Gene Wilder in the first adaptation in 1971 and a long-distance confrontation with Johnny Depp for the second version in 2005, captures the essence of this magical character with great sincerity and true talent for the musical. Production designer Nathan Crowley has created a vivid world, a magical gallery, with the cartel's chocolate shops, and then the laundry and a monumental city, while the costumes with which Lindy Hemming has characterized the characters are simply gorgeous.
