Will there be a Wonka 2? Here’s what we know about a sequel:

Wonka 2

Wonka, directed by Paul King and starring Timothée Chalamet, tells  the story of Willy Wonka before his incredible Chocolate Factory. It’s a sweet and extremely fun movie with some great performances. Fans of the character and the previous movies will enjoy it a good deal. However, as it brings some new aspects and a protagonist that doesn’t resemble completely what we’ve seen in the other films and the book, it can also be the start of a different story.

But will there be a Wonka 2? Or will it be only a prequel focusing on the Chocolatier’s first adventure? Here’s what we know at the time of writing:

What is Wonka about?

The movie follows Willy Wonka after arriving in Europe to fulfil his dream of opening a chocolate shop. His competitors dislike his product, as chocolate should be simple, and don’t want him in the city anymore. Nothing will stop them from getting what they want, as they even have the police on their hands. But Wonka and his new friends have a plan that will allow him to sell anything he wants and, one day, open his own establishment.

Will there be a Wonka 2?

At the time of writing, a sequel to Wonka has not been announced

Paul King, the director, has said he wants to spend more time in that universe though. He has also said that many other Willy Wonka stories can be told. That is entirely true. This franchise can have its own version of the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory tale. But, even before that, other situations can be explored, like Wonka becoming the world-success he is in the future.

What could Wonka 2 be about?

At the end of Wonka, we see the protagonist and Lofty, an Oompa Loompa, building their Chocolate Factory. The sequel could be about the construction of the place, how it gets so popular in the future, his attempts to bring more Oompa Loompas to help him, and more.

As it’s a very magical and unexplored world, Paul King has a lot of space to create.

When could Wonka 2 be released?

It’s hard to say at the moment, as it hasn’t been officially confirmed, but it seems unlikely to even come out in 2024. Wonka 2 could come in 2025 or a bit later if it is given the nod though.

Of course, this is all speculation and if anything changes, we’ll be sure to update you!
