Watch Now: The Cast Of ‘Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory’ Reunite 40 Years Later
  |  @   |  

Recently on Today, part of the cast of Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory reunited almost 40 years after the now-classic fantasy favorite first arrived.

As they note at the beginning of the video, the movie — based on the Roald Dahl children’s book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory — wasn’t all that well-received at first, and it took some time before it started to develop its following, making it technically a cult classic. But now the movie is something many of us grew up watching, and is a near and dear favorite to millions all over the globe.

You can see the video of the Willy Wonka cast reunion by heading on over to the other side now!

The first thing I personally thought when I saw there was a reunion was “where’s Gene?!” Sadly, Mr. Gene Wilder — who’s still out there somewhere, doing the J.D. Salinger thing — wasn’t able to make the gathering.

So who did attend the reunion? Well, all five of the kids — Peter Ostrum (Charlie Bucket), Julie Dawn Cole (Veruca Salt), Denise Nickerson (Violet Beauregarde), Paris Themmen (Mike Teevee), Michael Bollner (Augustus Gloop), and Diana Sowle (Mrs. Bucket).
