Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is Tim Burtonâ€™s bold remake of Roald Dahlâ€™s classic childrenâ€™s story of a boy and a golden ticket. Willy Wonka (Johnny Depp) closed his chocolate factoryâ€™s doors years ago, but they are about to be opened once again. The aging Wonka wants to find an heir, so he announces a contest: Find one of the five golden tickets hidden in Wonka Bars around the world, and receive a tour of the company and a lifetime supply of chocolate. One of the five lucky children to find the tickets is Charlie Bucket (Freddie Highmore), a poor boy with heart of gold, whoâ€™s always dreamed of something more. Tim Burtonâ€™s film isnâ€™t so much a remake of the original 1971 film, but I faithful recreation of Dahlâ€™s book. Of course, Burton brings his intense and vibrant visual style to the table. He makes the story his own while being true to the original.
