    THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER's Taika Waititi Boards CHARLIE & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY Animated Series

    According to THR, Waititi has signed on to direct, write and exec produce a pair of animated shows based on Roald Dahl's classic tale for Netflix. The first seems to be a straight adaptation of the book, while the other is described as "a wholly original take on the Oompa-Loompas."


    I can trust Waititi to make it wacky and fun. He can do better than Tim Burton did with the story.

    Please base it off of the original, not the Tim Burton one.

    We’ll surely they’ll be basing it on the book, I mean unless you’re going to use the long form format Netflix can provide and thus do the Great Glass Elevator as well, there’s no point because you’re not gonna get a better adaptation than the Gene Wilder version.

    What's the point then? If you're going to make this animated, it needs to be based on the book and be accurate to that. No more golden goose shit and no more dentistry shit.

    Am I missing something or doesn't the whole story wrap up in one day? They gonna drag it on for 10 episodes like the show 24 one hour at a time?

    Well, there is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and then there is the other book, where they go up into the elevator. I'm not sure how they can stretch this into a TV series, but, I say, go for it.

    I'm competition winner Charlie Bucket, and this is the weirdest day of my life. Events occur in surreal time.





    The main bulk of the first book does take place over one day, but the preamble with the competition and finding the golden tickets takes months. They could always do an episode per ticket, I suppose.

    It depends how they do it, but they could do it as 1 chapter is an episode.
