Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) is a family film based on the 1964 children's book of the same title by author Roald Dahl and partially upon its sequel, Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator. The film was directed by Tim Burton and stars Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka and Freddie Highmore as Charlie Bucket.

It is the second film adaptation of the children's book, the first being 1971's Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, directed by Mel Stuart and starring Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka and Peter Ostrum as Charlie Bucket.

Plot overview

Charlie Bucket is a poor boy living with his parents and four grandparents in a tiny, rickety shack in the city. He spends most of his time dreaming about the chocolate that comes from the nearby chocolate factory, owned by the greatest candy maker in the world, Willy Wonka. Charlie's family is struggling to make ends meet when his father (Noah Taylor) loses his job at the toothpaste factory. Things begin to look up when Willy Wonka announces that he has placed "Golden Tickets" into five of his Wonka Bars. The finders of these special items will be given a full tour of Wonka’s famous candy factory (the inner workings of which are a tightly kept secret) and a lifetime supply of chocolate. Also, for one of the five ticketholders there will be a "surprise".

It happens to be Charlie's birthday next week, the one day each year that he receives a Wonka Bar. Despite nearly impossible odds of winning, he is still disappointed when he finds no golden ticket inside. One by one, news reports from all over the world reveal the children who find the first four tickets, all characterized by a major personality flaw. Grandpa Joe (David Kelly), who used to work at Wonka's factory, gives Charlie a coin to buy another bar. It comes up empty once again, but, on the last day of the contest, Charlie finds a bill of cash with which he buys the last winning chocolate bar.

The next morning Charlie and Grandpa Joe arrive for the tour, led by the strange and eccentric candy man, Willy Wonka. During the tour, the first four ticket-winning children, other than Charlie, are one by one tempted by something extraordinary, resulting in an accident, causing the child and the worried accompanying parent to be off the tour, but in each case Willy Wonka is quite indifferent about the accident. Augustus Gloop (Philip Wiegratz), a gluttonous overeater, falls into a river of chocolate in The Chocolate Room and is sucked away by a pipe. Competitive gum-chewer Violet Beauregarde (Annasophia Robb) hastily chews a defective piece of gum that turns her into a giant blueberry. Spoiled Veruca Salt (Julia Winter) demands to steal a squirrel for herself in the Nut Room, where she is attacked by the squirrels and thrown down a chute, deemed a "bad nut". Mike Teavee (Jordan Fry), who is obsessed with TV and video games, demands to be the first human transported over television waves (teleportation), causing him to be shrunken to miniature size. Each of the "accidents" occur after the children refuse instructions against doing something, and each is followed by a song of morality by the Oompa-Loompas (Deep Roy), Wonka's little factory workers from Loompaland. By the end of the day, each of the children leave the factory, altered in some way by their wrongdoings, Augustus Gloop was covered in melted chocolate, Violet Beauregarde was blue and flexible, Veruca Salt was covered in garbage, and Mike Teavee was a at least 10 ft tall and as thin as paper.
