Warner Home Video scheduled the original 1971 Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory for re-release on Blu-Ray Disc in November.
Join the expedition visiting legendary Candy Man Willy Wonka (Gene Wilder) in a splendiferous movie that wondrously brings to the screen the endlessly appetizing delights of Roald Dahl’s classic book. Coated with flavorful tunes and production design that constantly dazzles the eye, this effervescent musical never fails to enchant young and old. On a whirlwind tour of Willy’s incredible, edible realm of chocolate waterfalls, elfish Oompa-Loompas and industrial-sized confections, a boy named Charlie (Peter Ostrum) will discover the sweetest secret of all: a generous, loving heart. And you’ll rediscover the timeless magic of a delicious family classic.
The release will cull bonus materials from the DVD version and as such you will find the Delectable Documentary ”Pure Imagination: The Story of Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” on the disc, as well as a Mouth-Watering Commentary with the Wonka Kids. Further look for Scrumptious Sing-Along Songs and a Tasty Vintage Featurette as well as the movie’s Theatrical Trailer.
“Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory” will be in stores on November 16 for $24.98.
