Timothée Chalamet Will Be Singing An Eye-Popping Number Of Songs In Wonka


in ,


According to Timothée Chalamet, he is set to perform seven different musical numbers in “Wonka.” And while many people have been calling for a darker and more sexualized take on Roald Dahl’s character to come out of Chalamet, he says fans shouldn’t hold their breath. “You know what’s really funny about that is it’s so misleading,” Chalamet told Vogue. “This movie is so sincere, it’s so joyous.”

While there hasn’t been much out there about Paul King’s “Wonka” and Chalamet’s expected performance, fans at CinemaCon 2022 were reportedly treated to a first look at the film back in April 2022, and it drew loads of praise. “Looks like a big, colorful, feel-good musical rooted in the relationship between Wonka (Timothée Chalamet) & his mom (Sally Hawkins),” wrote blogger Erik Davis on Twitter after seeing the “Wonka” tease at CinemaCon. “Will be a big holiday family movie, for sure.” Chalamet has previously described the 2023 musical epic as being a perfect fit for him and where he is in his career. 

“It’s not mining the darker emotions in life,” he told Time in October 2021. “It’s a celebration of being off-center and of being okay with the weirder parts of you that don’t quite fit in.”
