Here's Where You Can Stream The Willy Wonka Movies

If the new trailer for Timothée Chalamet's "Wonka" has you craving something scrumdiddlyumptious, it's hard to blame you. Whether you're a newcomer to adaptations of the classic Roald Dahl story or simply feeling nostalgic, there's never a bad time to give either one of the "Wonka" movies a watch. And finding them online is easier than hunting down a golden ticket. 

The 1971 iteration, "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory," is currently streaming for free on Sling. The film took its fair share of liberties from the book, including removing its problematic elements. While not a box office success when initially released, "Willy Wonka" has gone down as an acclaimed childhood staple thanks to its collection of fun songs, timeless morals, and Gene Wilder's legendary performance as the titular candymaker.

The next adaptation was Tim Burton's 2005 "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory." For fans of the Johnny Depp-starring fantasy, it is available to watch on Hulu. Both "Charlie" and "Willy Wonka" are also available for rent or purchase on platforms such as YouTube, Amazon Prime, Apple TV, Vudu, and Google Play. Despite being more divisive than the 1971 version, Burton's film is considered more faithful to Dahl's text. It went on to earn $475 million at the worldwide box office and received an Oscar nomination for its costume design. 

"Wonka" has some big shoes to fill, given its predecessors' fan-favorite status. Thankfully, Chalamet believes that audiences will appreciate the upcoming film's bright-eyed spark. 

Chalamet hopes Wonka offers a sweet treat to moviegoers

Time will tell how "Wonka" will compare to past interpretations of the classic Roald Dahl book. But if its recent song and dance-filled trailer is any indication, the film won't be holding back on the whimsy department. Such colorful spectacle is just what the world needs, according to Timothée Chalamet, who headlines the film as a young Willy Wonka who has yet to become a worldwide candy-creating icon.

The "Dune" star spoke with Vogue about the film, explaining what made him say yes to the role. "To work on something that will have an uncynical young audience, that was just a big joy," he commented. "That's why I was drawn to it." But Chalamet also sees the bigger picture with "Wonka" and what the film could mean to audiences in today's social climate. "In a time and climate of intense political rhetoric, when there's so much bad news all the time, this is hopefully going to be a piece of chocolate," the actor added.

No matter what version is the most delectable to you, this story is beloved by kids and adults, and with good reason. If Chalamet's optimistic viewpoint is anything to go off of, "Wonka" is shaping up to be another worthwhile adaptation.
