Taika Waititi Bringing Two 'Charlie & the Chocolate Factory' Shows to Netflix!

Two Charlie and the Chocolate Factory animated shows are heading to Netflix, and Jojo Rabbit‘s Taika Waititi is on board to write, direct, and executive produce!

The first series will be an original take on the world of the beloved Roald Dahl series. The second series will be “a wholly original take on the Oompa-Loompas, that builds out their world.”

“Our mission, which is purposefully lofty, is for as many children as possible around the world to experience the unique magic and positive message of Roald Dahl’s stories,” Roald Dahl’s widow, Felicity Dahl, said in a statement. “This partnership with Netflix marks a significant move toward making that possible and is an incredibly exciting new chapter for the Roald Dahl Story Company. Roald would, I know, be thrilled.”
