Tim told me that the Oompa-Loompas were strictly programmed, like robots—all they do is work, work, work," Roy commented. In addition to Nestlé, Hostess introduced Chocolicious WonkaCakes, and Wendy's released Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-themed kids' meal toys.

Roger Ebert was among the critics who made such comparisons, citing Depp's performance as the weak spot in an "otherwise mostly delightful" film and noting "[Willy Wonka's] reclusive lifestyle, the fetishes of wardrobe and accessories, the elaborate playground built by an adult for the child inside" as parallels between the two.Burton dismissed the comparisons and stated that, unlike Jackson, Depp's iteration of the character does not like children. Amazed and awed by the machines and chocolate, things begin to go awry, and their visit does not go as planned. Both sets featured the same bonus features as the HD DVD, although the anniversary edition included a personal retrospective by Burton and a photo book.

The company's owner, Willy Wonka, has long closed his factory to the public due to problems concerning industrial espionage, which also caused all his employees, including Charlie's Grandpa Joe, to lose their jobs. Charlie and the rest of the winners find themselves in a magical world of chocolate rivers, Oompa Loompas, everlasting gobstoppers, lickable wall-paper, golden egg-laying geese and chilling tales to warn children not to misbehave. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory premiered on July 10, 2005, and was released in the United States on July 15 to positive critical reviews, who commended it for its visual appeal and dark tone.Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH).

In line with the film's theatrical release in the United States, an eponymous tie-in video game was released on the Xbox, PlayStation 2, GameCube, Game Boy Advance, and Microsoft Windows platforms. While the main set pieces were filmed on soundstages at Pinewood Studios in England, the crew also shot on several locations across the country, with the toothpaste factory filmed at a CompAir factory in High Wycombe, [60] and Veruca Salt's manor filmed at Hatfield House for the interior shots [61] and Wrotham Park for the exterior. Burton shot the film simultaneously alongside the stop-motion animated film Corpse Bride, which he also directed. The squirrels were then given props and taught how to sit upon a bar stool, tap and then open a walnut, and deposit its meat onto a conveyor belt. During pre-production, Burton visited Dahl's former home in the Buckinghamshire village of Great Missenden.Pitt's production company, Plan B Entertainment, however, stayed on to co-finance the film with Warner Bros.

Sections of artificial grass were laid upon blocks of polystyrene foam that formed the shape of the landscape. The Dahl estate's subsequent protection of the source material was the main reason that Charlie and the Chocolate Factory had languished in development hell since the 1990s. did not want Jackson for the role, arguing that it would not be marketable for him to be the leading role in a family film. In addition to those tracks, instrumentals of "Wonka's Welcome Song" and the Oompa-Loompa songs were included, as well as several demos.Depp and Burton may fly too high on the vapors of pure imagination, but it's hard to not get hooked on something this tasty. McDowell scouted several industrial mill towns in Northern England but came to the conclusion that a real place would not look stylized enough for Burton.
