The story centers around Charlie Bucket, a young boy who comes from a poor but loving family who would love nothing more than to find a golden ticket to enter the amazing chocolate factory run by eccentric inventor and owner Willy Wonka.

As luck would have it, Charlie finds the last golden ticket and goes on this once-in-a-lifetime adventure with his Grandpa Joe. Among the other four winners are Veruca Salt, a spoiled rich girl; Augustus Gloop, a gluttonous kid who stuffs his face with sweets; Violet Beuragarde, a champion gum chewer; and Mike Teavee, a kid who spends more time watching TV than anything else.

Also along the tour are Wonka’s staff, the singing and dancing, working Oompa Loompas as well as a testy rabble of giant squirrels.
