    Though the book is called Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the 1971 movie is named after Willy Wonka. There are two reasons for this: When the NAACP was protesting the Oompa-Loompas, they also demanded that the movie’s title be changed so as not to promote the book among viewers of the movie. The second reason for shifting the main character focus was because the movie was financed by Quaker Oats, who were looking at it as a way of advertising a new line of chocolate bars that they were about to produce. Eventually, they settled on calling the new bar the Wonka Bar, and with that they chose to rename the entire movie after Willy Wonka as a promotional tie-in.”

    There is a Charlie and the chocolate factory movie and Jonny Depp is just creepy as hell!

    The story is about Charlie Bucket... I would have been more impressed (but of course surprised) if it had it's true title of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (not based on the movie).

    The celebrity slapped on there adds nothing of value for me. Like others I seem to be underwhelmed... where is the chocolate factory and rivers of chocolate? ... with the boat?? lol

    Good interview with Jack on Spooky Pinball Podcast. It starts at the 1:15.50 mark. He talks about all his games including Wonka.
