Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Quotes by Roald Dahl
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)
The story features the adventures of young Charlie Bucket inside the chocolate factory of eccentric chocolatier Willy Wonka. Knopf, Inc. Dahl had also planned to write a third book in the series but never finished it. The story was originally inspired by Roald Dahl's experience of chocolate companies during his schooldays. Cadbury would often send test packages to the schoolchildren in exchange for their opinions on the new products. Because of this, both companies became highly protective of their chocolate-making processes.

A sweet boy from a poor family dreams of finding one of five golden tickets hidden inside chocolate bar wrappers which will admit him to the eccentric and reclusive Willy Wonka's magical factory. One after another, tickets are discovered by ghastly children - but will the lad find the last remaining one and have all his dreams come true?
Storyline: When Willy Wonka decides to let five children into his chocolate factory, he decides to release five golden tickets in five separate chocolate bars, causing complete mayhem. The tickets start to be found, with the fifth going to a very special boy, called Charlie Bucket. With his Grandpa, Charlie joins the rest of the children to experience the most amazing factory ever. But not everything goes to plan within the factory. The story has been realised in a lot more of an appropriate way for the modern world. Tim Burton has yet again done a tremendous job of bringing this fantasy world to life. It does a better job of bringing the original material to the screen than the original, the only problem I have is with Johnny Depp.
Advertising and pop culture have obviously gone hand in hand for decades, from Charlie Brown and his friends shilling for Coca Cola to the Flintstones selling cigarettes. However, one of the sneakiest mixture of advertising and fiction occurred in the classic film, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory , a much-beloved film musical adaptation of Roald Dahl's classic children's novel, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The film tells the story of a young, good-hearted but very poor boy named Charlie who is given the chance by discovering one of five "Golden Tickets" in a chocolate Wonka Bar to take a tour of the famous candy factory owned and operated by the mysterious Willy Wonka. As it turns out, Wonka is using this tour as a way to determine if any of the five children on the tour have the moral fiber to be his successor as owner of the candy factory when Wonka retires. He ends up choosing Charlie. While the film was not a significant hit when it was first released, it has since become a major success on video, DVD and re-airings on television.
