The visually stunning trailer introduces Willy Wonka, who shares his journey of traveling the world for seven years to master the art of chocolate before arriving in a fictional European town.
Dreaming of owning a chocolate shop in the city, he is confronted with a warning from the chocolate cartel, stating that he cannot own a shop without selling chocolate, yet he cannot sell chocolate without owning a shop.
As fate would have it, Willy encounters an orphan girl and makes a promise to improve her life. With his creativity and imagination, he crafts unique chocolates, including one that defies gravity, creating a buzz in the streets.
