A new 30-second TV commercial for CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY!

A new 30-second television commercial for Tim Burton’s CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY debuted during the Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards on Saturday night. The spot begins with Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka saying, “Let’s boogie!” and shows glimpses of Augustus Gloop falling into the chocolate river; Willy Wonka and Charlie Bucket (Freddie Highmore) getting into the boat; the notorious squirrel room with its live, trained squirrels (no CGI effects here); and, in another demonstration of the new voice Johnny adopted for the Wonka character, the chocolatier telling Charlie’s grandfather (Jim Broadbent), “You’re a little weird.” Takes one to know one, Mr. Wonka!

If you missed the new commercial during the Kid’s Choice Awards, you can view it on the moviebox trailer page–just scroll to the bottom of the CATCF listings, where it says “30 Second Spot.” You can view the commercial and other CATCF trailers HERE. The Zone thanks Juno for posting the link!
