There is anticipation and curiosity surrounding the upcoming prequel to Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory). The film promises to explore the origins of the whimsical chocolatier and the creation of his candy empire using innovative techniques. The casting of talented actors is crucial for the success of this project. Already confirmed to star as Wonka is Timothee Chalamet, and now, joining him is the accomplished actor Keegan-Michael Key.

Key’s role in the upcoming film Wonka has not been revealed yet. The script is being kept under wraps by Warner Bros., leaving fans to wonder about the character Key will portray. Nevertheless, given Key’s versatile acting skills, he is expected to deliver a stellar performance.

While best known for his work in comedy with Key and Peele, Key has showcased his talent across various film and television projects, including live-action roles in Schmigadoon! and The Prom, as well as voice roles in animated films like The Lego Movie, Toy Story 4, and the remake of The Lion King.

The film Wonka is helmed by director Paul King, known for his work on the Paddington films. Producer David Heyman has shared that production for the film will commence this month. The release date for Wonka is slated for March 17, 2023, for a theatrical debut.
