Original Willy Wonka Film Voted Better Than The Remake

Original Willy Wonka Film Voted Better Than The Remake

It's difficult to remake an absolute classic, but when Tim Burton released Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in 2005, many thought he had outdone the original.

It seems like you lot have different ideas though. Since both the original - Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971) - and the remake have been added on to Netflix, we thought we'd pit the two against each other and see which you thought was best.

It was a landslide win for the original though, with a massive 72 percent of more than 12,000 Twitter users thinking that Gene Wilder's depiction of the Roald Dahl favourite was the best.

One person said: "The Tim Burton one is good but nothing compares to Gene Wilder!!!"

Another wrote: "Has to be the original and I've just finished watching it."

A third replied: "That's not even a question."

Well it is, mate. We just asked it.

But it does seem that there is a lot of love for the original.

AND if that's not enough Willy Wonka action for you, Netflix has announced that it will be recreating some Roald Dahl classics including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda and The Twits.

The popular streaming service took to Twitter to explain that Jojo Rabbit writer Taika Waititi will be taking the reigns when it comes to not one but TWO Charlie and the Chocolate Factory series'.

It then confirmed that it wasn't stopping there, adding: "Matilda, The BFG, The Twits, and many other beloved Dahl stories are set to follow soon!" This is like music to our ears.

Fans seem delighted by the announcement with one writing: "This is brilliant. Is there anyway someone can invent time travel so I can go back in time and tell younger me that there will be a good version of Willy Wonka some day?"

Another added: "Oh my lord. This is the best news I've heard in a while."

A third said: "I'm hype af for these series. I LOVED Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as a kid and it could translate so well to an animated series."
