With yet another remake in the planning Invasion of the Remake decided to go back in time to compare and contrast the two films based on the Roald Dahl novel. Willy Wonka and the Chocalate Factory (1971) starring Gene Wilder, Jack Albertson, and Peter Ostrum is now considered a childhood favorite by many given the benefit of time, but wasn't a big success in the box office. Thirty-four years later director Tim Burton brought his vision of the classic novel to the silver screen in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) with Johnny Depp, Freddie Highmore, Helena Bonham Carter, and Deep Roy to mixed reviews but a massive box office. Our very own Invasion hosts have divided opinions, but they all agree that Willy Wonka must pay for his murderous intentions. Is Willy Wonka a childhood favorite or a child murderer? Download this week's episode to find out.
