Timothée Chalamet Shares First Look of Himself as Willy Wonka

The origin story film is set to premiere in 2023.

Months after being confirmed to star in the new film, Timothée Chalamet has shared the first look of himself playing “the amazing chocolatier” in Wonka.

“The suspense is terrible, I hope it will last,” the actor wrote on Instagram, appearing in a full Willy Wonka look featuring a brown top hat and a purple velvet coat. In the second photo, the star is seen reaching for what seems to be Wonka’s signature cane.

Chalamet will be succeeding Gene Wilder (1971) and Johnny Depp (2005) as Willy Wonka in the film based on Roald Dahl’s 1964 novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Not much information on Wonka has been revealed so far, but head over to Chalamet’s Instagram for a sneak peek and stay tuned as we learn more. The movie is set to release on March 17, 2023.
