that you/they went home,

and he/she announced...

that he/she was closing yours

chocolate factory forever.

I am closing mine

chocolate factory...

... forever.

But he didn't close her forever.

She is open, right now.

Sometimes when adults say forever,

they want to say for a long time.

Sometimes I feel that only

I will eat cabbage soup...

- forever.

- It arrives, father!

The factory really closed,


And it seemed that it would be

closed forever.

Then, one day,

we saw smoke leave the chimneys...

- the factory had returned!

- And did it get his/her job of turn?

No, nobody got.

But it should have

somebody working there.

Think about that, Charlie.

Some time already saw somebody

to enter in that factory?

Or to leave of her?


the gates are always closed.


But then,

who is operating the machines?

- Nobody knows, Charlie.

- It is without a doubt a mystery.

And somebody already asked

to Mr. Wonka?

nobody more he/she sees him/it.

He never leaves.

The only thing that leaves

of that place they are the candies.

Already wrapped and addressed.

I would give any thing

only to enter,

once again...

and to see how that is

fantastic factory.

But you won't go,

you are not able to.

nobody can,

it is a mystery...

and it will always be a mystery.

That factory that you did,


it is the closest of her that

any one of us will arrive.

We go there, Charlie...

I think it is in the hour

of all we sleep.

- Good night, grandpa George.

- Good night, Charlie.

Good night, grandpa Joe.

Good night, grandma Georgina.

Nothing is impossible, Charlie.

- Good night!

- Good night, Charlie.

And on that same night,

the impossible already began

to happen.

Dear people of the world...

me, Willy Wonka,

I decided to leave five children
