Willy Wonka Fans Debate Gene Wilder vs. Johnny Depp Performance Interpretations

Roald Dahl’s 1964 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory children’s novel went on to become a cultural phenomenon. Hollywood adapted the story under the title Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory in 1971. Gene Wilder delivered a legendary performance as the chocolate factory’s owner. Johnny Depp also played the character in the 2005 reimagining, which took on the original novel’s name. Fans are passionately debating which performance is better.
