LOS ANGELES: The chocolatey world of Willy Wonka is back, and director Paul King insists that it is “funny, it’s colorful and it’s chaotic.”

The fantasy musical “Wonka,” which released on Dec. 14 in Saudi Arabia, is a prequel that tells the origin story of the iconic chocolatier from Roald Dahl’s 1964 book, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.”

The film follows the young and eager Wonka, played by Timothee Chalamet, who moves to the city to pursue his dream of opening his very own chocolate shop after the death of his chocolatier mom, played by Sally Hawkins.
