(MUSIC PLAYING)

NARRATOR:
This

is a story of...

an ordinary little boy...

named Charlie Bucket.

He was not faster

or stronger

or more clever...

than other children.

His family was not rich...

or powerful or

well-connected.

In fact...

they barely had

enough to eat.

Charlie Bucket was the...

luckiest boy in

the entire world.

He just didn't know it yet.

Evening, Buckets.

Evening.

CHARLIE:
Hi, Dad.

Soup's almost ready, darling.

Don't suppose

there's anything...

extra to put in, love.

Oh, well.

Nothing goes better with

cabbage than cabbage.

Charlie...

I found something I

think you'll like.

NARRATOR:
Charlie's

father worked...

at the local

toothpaste factory.

The hours were long...

and the pay was terrible...

yet occasionally, there...

were unexpected surprises.

It's exactly what I need!

What is it, Charlie?

Dad found it.

just the piece I needed.

What piece was it?

A head for Willy Wonka.

Well, how wonderful.

It's quite a likeness.

CHARLIE:
You think so?

Think so?

I know so.

I saw Willy Wonka...

with my own two eyes.

I used to work for

him, you know.

You did?

I did.

He did.

He did.

I love grapes.

Of course, I was a much...

younger man in those days.

GRANDPA JOE:
Willy

Wonka began with...

a single store...

on Cherry Street.

But the whole world...

wanted his candy.

Mr. Wonka.

Yeah?

We need more Wonka bars...

and we're out of

chocolate birds.

Birds?

Birds.

Well, then...

we'll need to

make some more.

Here.

Now open.

(TWEETS)

(LAUGHS)

The man was a genius.

Did you know he

invented a new...

way of making chocolate

ice cream...

so that it stays cold for...

hours without a freezer?

You can even leave

it lying in...

the sun on a hot day...

and it won't go runny.

But that's impossible.

But Willy Wonka did it.

(GATES OPENING LOUDLY)

GRANDPA JOE:
Before long...

he decided to build...

a proper chocolate factory.

The largest chocolate...

factory in history.

Fifty times as...

big as any other.

Grandpa, don't

make it gross.

Tell him about the

lndian prince.

He'd like to

hear about that.

You mean, Prince Pondicherry?

Well...

Prince Pondicherry wrote...

a letter to Mr. Wonka...

and asked him to come...

all the way out to India...

and build him a

colossal palace...

entirely out of chocolate.

(LAUGHS)

WONKA:
It will have 100 rooms...

and everything will

be made by of...

dark or light chocolate.

GRANDPA JOE:
True

to his word...

the bricks were

chocolate...

and the cement holding...

them together

was chocolate.

All the walls...

and ceilings were made...

of chocolate as well.

So were the carpets...

and the pictures...

and the furniture.

It is perfect...

in every way.

Yeah, but it

won't last long.

You better start

eating right now.

Oh, nonsense.

I will not eat my palace.

I intend to live in it.

But Mr. Wonka...

was right, of course.

Soon after this...

there came a very hot day...

with a boiling sun.

Mmm.

(LAUGHS)

(YELLS)

Oh!

(DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING)

The prince sent an...

urgent telegram requesting...

a new palace.

But Willy Wonka was facing...

problems of his own.

All the other

chocolate makers,

you see, had grown...

jealous of Mr. Wonka.

They began sending...

in spies to steal...

his secret recipes.

Fickelgruber started making...

an ice cream that...

would never melt.

Prodnose came out...

with a chewing gum...

that never lost its flavor.

Then Slugworth began...

making candy balloons...

that you could blow up...

to incredible sizes.

(EXCLAIMS)

The thievery got so bad...

that one day, without warning...

Mr. Wonka told every single...
