Netflix has ordered not one but two animated series based on Roald Dahl’s Charlie And The Chocolate Factory. Taika Waititi will write, direct, and executive produce both series.
The first is based on the book, while the second will explore the world of the Oompa-Loompas, who are definitely not enslaved by Willy Wonka. Definitely not.
Netflix claims both will “retain the quintessential spirit and tone of the original story while building out the world and characters far beyond the pages of the Dahl book for the very first time.”
