After 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' comes another oh-so-chocolatey movie...The trailer for 'Wonka' is officially here!

This prequel to the hit movie features none other than Timothy Chalamet, Hugh Grant, Rowan Atkinson, Matt Lucas, Olivia Colman, and more!

We don't know about you, but there's something about Hugh Grant playing an Oompa-Loompa that we just must know more about. 

From the director of 'Paddington' Paul King and producer of 'Harry Potter' David Heyman, the movie is described as an "irresistibly vivid and inventive big screen spectacle" that will "introduce audiences to a young Willy Wonka, chock-full of ideas and determined to change the world one delectable bite at a time—proving that the best things in life begin with a dream, and if you’re lucky enough to meet Willy Wonka, anything is possible."

Timothy Chalamet certainly has big shoes to fill, as the role was previously played by Gene Wilder and Johnny Depp. But on that end, fans don't seem to be too worried. 

"“cute”, “graceful”, “lovely” and “pretty” are not enough to describe timothée chalamet’s willy wonka," said one fan on Twitter

Mark your calendars! 'Wonka' is expected to hit theatres just in time for the holidays on December 15!
