Charlie Bucket and four other children find a golden ticket inside a Wonka Bar, granting them access to a guided tour of the long-closed Wonka factory. Each has been approached by Slugworth who wants an Everlasting Gobstopper. Charlie and his grandpa throw away the prize by drinking the Fizzy Lifting Drink despite being asked not to, but Charlie returns the Everlasting Gobstopper, proving his honesty and goodness over the other kids and wins the factory.
Trivia: Peter Ostrum won the role for Charlie while acting at the Cleveland Playhouse children's theater in 6th grade. He had no acting experience after that, and is now a veterinarian.
