Wonka Prequel Movie Photo: First Look at Timothée Chalamet in Costume

Timothée Chalamet reveals a first look image for his upcoming film Wonka, where he plays the iconic candy maker created by Roald Dahl. Already the star of two feature films, plus an in-development Netflix animated series, Willy Wonka will once again step into the spotlight with a new prequel movie directed by Paul King (Paddington). Officially announced earlier this year, Wonka will debut in theaters in March 2023 and offer a new story for the well-known character. Chalamet was officially cast in May, and production kicked off recently.

In addition to Chalamet, Wonka stars Keegan Michael-Key, Sally Hawkins, Rowan Atkinson, and Olivia Colman. Plot details are still being kept under wraps, but it's certain that the movie will explore Willy Wonka's origins and adventures from before he opened up his world famous chocolate factory. When Chalamet was cast, it was said Wonka will contain some dance numbers, though it isn't clear if the movie itself is being declared a musical.

On Sunday, Chalamet surprised fans by posting the very first picture of himself in character as Willy Wonka. The image reveals him in classic Victorian clothes with, naturally, a brown top hat. Check it out below.
