Reimaginings is right! #JojoRabbit's @TaikaWaititi will write, direct and executive produce not one but two animated event series based on the Roald Dahl classic, 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' https://t.co/wmagUupE0d— The Hollywood Reporter (@THR) March 5, 2020
The first series will be based on the world and characters of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, while the second is described as a wholly original take on the Oompa-Loompas, the small song-loving humans who worked in Willy Wonka’s infamous factory. So, the second is about slave labor, I suppose? Let's see.
Netflix made a deal with Dahl's estate in 2018.
No word if it will be a musical like Burton's version, which OP still staunchly believes is better than the original film, or if Charlie Bucket will be black like Dahl originally wanted in his story.
