Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will become an animated series
Taika Waititi seems omnipresent in a large number of television and film productions. Actor, author, producer, director and who knows what else, who together with Netflix is preparing new and interesting projects.
Taika Waititi is best known as director of Thor: Ragnarok and of the next Thor: Love and Thunder, author and director of comedy like What We Do in the Shadows, but also an Oscar-winning film such as Jojo Rabbit (author, director and actor) or successful series like The Mandalorian and many others.

The news was released by Netflix, who had long had in mind to start productions inherent in the universe of stories by the English author Roald Dahl.

The first news is the production of two animated series that will produce, write and direct Waititi and based on the world and characters of the famous "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" the first series, and on the funny "Oompa-Loompas", the small workers of the second Chocolate Factory, the second series.

Future productions will concern other stories always taken from Dahl's texts such as "Matilda", "The BFG" and "The Twits". The network said it would "try to draw the quintessential spirit of the author to recreate and expand the universe of his books".

Melissa Cobb, Netflix's vp of original animation, said: "I grew up reading the stories of Dahl and immersing myself in his magical worlds and for some time we were looking for the right creative partner to bring in animations Willy Wonka, Charlie and the Oompa-Loompa ... until Taika entered the room. If Dahl had created a character from a director to adapt his work, I'm pretty sure he would have created Taika".

Gideon Simeloff, director of the Roald Dahl Story Company, adds "Speaking as Willy Wonka, we could say that we are delighted, fascinated and super excited to be working with Taika. His humor and creativity they marry perfectly with the characters of the story and we can't wait to see these productions made together with Netflix".

We await future news with dates and further information.
