Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Having proven itself as a favorite film of children around the world, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory is every bit as entertaining now as it was when originally released in 1971. There's a timeless appeal to Roald Dahl's classic children's novel, which was playfully preserved in this charming musical, from the colorful carnival-like splendor of its production design to the infectious melody of the "Oompah-Loompah" songs that punctuate the story. Who can forget those diminutive Oompah-Loompah workers who recite rhyming parental warnings ("Oompah-Loompah, doopity do...") whenever some mischievous child has disobeyed Willy Wonka's orders to remain orderly? Oh, but we're getting ahead of ourselves ... it's really the story of the impoverished Charlie Bucket, who, along with four other kids and their parental guests, wins a coveted golden ticket to enter the fantastic realm of Wonka's mysterious confectionery. After the other kids have proven themselves to be irresponsible brats, it's Charlie who impresses Wonka and wins a reward beyond his wildest dreams. But before that, the tour of Wonka's factory provides a dazzling parade of delights, and with Gene Wilder giving a brilliant performance as the eccentric candyman, Wonka gains an edge of menace and madness that nicely counterbalances the movie's sentimental sweetness. It's that willingness to risk a darker tone--to show that even a wonderland like Wonka's can be a weird and dangerous place if you're a bad kid--that makes this an enduring family classic. --Jeff Shannon

Special Features

The golden ticket on this DVD is a delectable commentary track with the five grown-up Wonka kids: Julie Dawn Cole, Denise Nickerson, Paris Themmen, Michael Bollner, and Charlie himself, Peter Ostrum. Reunited for the first time since 1971, they joke and laugh and delight in the stories and remembrances each new scene brings. Other Wonka goodies include the new 30-minute documentary Pure Imagination (featuring archival footage with author Roald Dahl and new interviews with Gene Wilder) and the original 1971 promotional featurette, but neither capture the sheer energy and excitement of the commentary. For 90 minutes these giddy grownups become impish kids in a movie wonderland almost as magical as Wonka's candy-colored world itself. --Sean Axmaker

The included book is a nice addition to the disc. The film does have some grain but it is a classic that can be watched over and over. A recommended buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Willy Wonka...amazing! Sept. 29 2013

I have to admit that I didn't see this movie until I saw it on a movie channel a month ago. Shortly thereafter I purchased the movie and was pleasantly surprised at the items that was included with the movie. My husband was like a kid again when he saw everything that came with the BluRay disc. The quality of the movie was great apart from a couple of scenes that were a tad blurry. Other than that, love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars There are 3 discs in this package! Aug. 22 2012
By Groover
Format:Blu-ray
I received this a while back and I am delighted with the contents. There are 3 discs contained (as described in the Amazon information), so not sure what happened to the previous reviewer's set or whether they ordered the single disc version. The reproduced booklet is superb (and A4 sized) and the featurettes and commentary with the children from the now grown up to be adults is another superb inclusion.
Treat yourself!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not True To Da Book May 17 2004
Format:DVD
I saw this movie a couple of years after I read the book. It is not exactly the same story as the book. In fact, there is so much changed that it's actually a little hard to believe it is the same story. I think Gene Wilder's character is horrible, not true to the book at all. He was supposed to be a nice, funny little man, not a sarcastic wise guy. But other than that, the movie is sometimes funnier than the book. Like when they show all the craze for the Wonka Bars. This is a nice, funny movie for families, but I would reccomend reading the book first. Also, those Oompa-Loompas can get really annoying, with their 'Doop-a Day-Doo' song.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still a great one! July 7 2004
Format:DVD
OK, I know you are saying to yourself, that movie is ancient ~ my kid wouldn't enjoy it. Well, trust me your kid will enjoy it. It is a great movie! For all who may have missed it over the years (is there anyone out there?), the story is about a giant chocolate factory run by a never seen owner (Wilder). Over the years of the factory's operation he has become quite the legend. He decides to open the factory to a few lucky winners of a contest ~ all but one of the winning kids are truly rotten. And as all good stories go, the bad kids get their just "desserts" (sorry, couldn't resist the pun) leaving the good kid to win. A lot of good lessons taught about sharing, greed, gluttony and theft. Pop some popcorn and enjoy it with your kid; you'll be glad you did.
