Chalamet gifted his Instagram followers with a scrumdiddlyumptious first look of himself as Willy Wonka in the upcoming 2023 Warner Bros. Pictures movie Wonka, the anticipated third film inspired by late author Roald Dahl‘s beloved children’s book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
“The suspense is terrible. I hope it will last …” the 25-year-old actor wrote, quoting one of the famous lines the late Gene Wilder uttered as the titular character in the 1971 musical flick Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
Chalamet added, “WONKA,” and included a factory and chocolate bar emoji.
In the pic, the Dune actor wore a plum jacket and brown top hat paired with a colorful scarf, resembling a combination of the look Wilder had as well as Johnny Depp‘s Wonka style in the 2005 film Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
