Willy Wonka Special Edition R1
Much rejoicing here as Warners have announced details of the 30th anniversary edition of Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory, one of my favourite films of the seventies. Dark, twisted and genuinely inspired, it's well worth seeing for adults as well as children. As it was a big flop on release, who would have thought it would now be considered a classic ? The disc has a new commentary from the five Wonka children, a documentary, a "Sing Along" (in which you will no doubt sound better than the actors, few of whom have any idea how to carry a tune), the original 1971 featurette and the original trailer. The disc will contain a 1.85:1 anamorphic transfer and DD5.1 sound. It's released on the 28th August and has an SRP of $19.95.
