    The story of Charlie Bucket (Ostrum), a little boy with no money and a good heart, who dreams wistfully of being able to buy the candy that other children enjoy.

Once behind the gates, a cast of characters join Charlie and Grandpa Joe (Albertson) on a journey to discover that a kind heart is a finer possession than a sweet tooth. Written by Roald Dahl (James & The Giant Peach) based on his book. Songs by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley.
