Other mistake: In the beginning of the song about Augustus Gloop, computer generated Oompa Loompas can be seen running through the Chocolate Room, preparing to sing their song. In the DVD release, some Oompa Loompas can be seen running to places that no real person could possibly stand on. This mistake was later corrected in the Blu-Ray release.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a Johnny Depp fantasy comedy adout a young boy who can win himself a candy franchise by being kind and good! Deep Roy, Missi Pyle, AnnaSophia Robb and others fill out the Oompa Loompas as well as the children and their exasperated parents, but Depp steals the show as the bizarre Willie Wonka, who now has a deeper backstory and a side quest of his own. Freddie Highmore tries to play Charlie, and he's OK. See both versions in order for the full effect.
Willy Wonka: Everything in this room is eatable. Even I'm eatable, but that is called canibalism, my dear children, and is in fact frowned upon in most societies.
Trivia: The squirrels were all real and trained, but when they were all put on the set they began to fight. The squirrel scenes had to be done like the Oompa Loompa scenes, taping all the squirrels separately and pasting them together.
Question: If the Buckets were very poor, then why do they even have TV? Why don't they use the extra money for food?
