Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory Vs. Charlie and The Chocolate Factory: The Characters
"Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory" is a popular movie that was made in 1971, directed by Mel Stuart. "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" is a re-make of Willy Wonka, made in 2005 and directed by Tim Burton. The titles of the 2 movies really should be switched. In Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory it's all about Charlie and his hard time trying to find the golden ticket. In Charlie and the Chocolate Factory it's more about Willy Wonka and his no longer existent relationship with his father due to the fact that his dad was a dentist and Willy left home to open his own candy factory. The two movies are similar because they have Willy Wonka, the factory, and the 5 kids getting golden tickets, but really they are entirely different.
