Wonka Plot Summary

That evening, Willy gets everything out and plans to sleep on a park bench, until a dog called “Tiddles” comes and sniffs his leg and a man tells him to come and spend the night in his sanctuary. Mrs Scrubit then shows Willy a contract to sign, and a girl who works there called Noodle tells him to read the contract carefully, but Willy just instantly signs.

Mrs Scrubit then tells Noodle off and throws her in a coup. The next day, Willy heads back to the Gourmet store and tells the public about his new flying chocolates and a trio of Chocolatiers see this and call the police, before going out and tasting some. Willy asks the Chief of police for some money for his rent and he hands him a silver coin. Unfortunately however, Willy didn’t read the contract properly and that coin wouldn’t be enough and Mrs Scrubit tells Willy he will have to work off the rest of the debt.

His mother used to make great chocolate and they had planned to take over the store in the Gourmet store that Willy wanted, but she had died soon after and he had never found out her secret. Noodle takes a bite of the chocolate and enjoys it, but is saddened by the fact that she won’t be able to have more, so Willy offers her a lifetime supply of chocolate and Noodle tells Willy one way they can escape.

Meanwhile, underneath the cathedral, the Chief of police is meeting with the Chocolatiers and through a song, encourage him to eliminate the competition and get rid of Wonka, by offering him 1,000 boxes of chocolate and he agrees. The next morning, Willy and Noodle attempt to get Scrubit and Bleacher to fall in love and Willy goes back down the Shute, and reveals an invention, which will do everyone’s work for them and he and Noodle escape.

Now on the streets, Willy tells Noodle about a “little orange man with green hair” who keeps stealing his chocolates, but Noodle doesn’t believe him. Once inside the zoo, it is revealed that Willy cannot read as he opens the door to the tiger instead of the giraffe. On the way out of the zoo, Willy grabs hold of some balloons and floats to the roof of the Gourmet store, where he and Noodle sing and dance, but the police see them.

One of them tells the story of how the Trio have been in cahoots for a long time and he used to work for one (Slugworth), but got fired for snooping around and Willy tells them he is a chocolate maker and his dream of owning the store. That night, Willy passes Noodle her chocolates and the gang have a conversation and agree to help Willy with his dream. Eventually, the Chief of police finds a chocolate wrapper and figures out that he has been escaping through the drains in the road. That night, the Chief of police asks the Chocolatiers for more chocolate and they agree.

The man tells Willy that he is an Oompa Loompa and he is disappointed at Willy for stealing cocoa beans from Loompaland Land and that he won’t go away until he has all the chocolate he requires, before hitting Willy with a frying pan and escaping with the chocolate. Also on board was the Oompa Loompa and he tells Willy he won’t leave him alone until he gets the chocolate and Willy notices an “A” mark on his hand and realizes that Noodle is in great danger. The next morning, Mrs Scrubit and Mr Bleacher let everyone go with their money, but tells Noodle that her money was to keep her there and Mrs Scrubit grabs her and throws her in the coup again.

At the cathedral, Noodle is disguised as a nun and asks the father for some chocolate, but he refuses. The father phones the “zoo”, which is Willy and his friends on the other side of the phone and tells them to get rid of it. Finally, Noodle opened a trap door in the wall and got out the book. Unfortunately, Slugworth and his companions got them and throw them in a giant chocolate mixer. Slugworth then tells them that the “N” is actually a “Z”, which belonged to his brother “Zebbedy” and told Noodle that he told her mother she would be in good hands, but instead, threw her down the laundry Shute and told her mother that she had died, before locking the door, taking Willys chocolates for the Oompa Loompa, eating them and leaving Willy and Noodle to drown in a river of chocolate.

The now oversized Chief of police got out of the car and is told that he as well as the Chocolatiers are under arrest. The Chocolatiers then start floating again and Willy reveals that the chocolate they had eaten were actually the flying chocolates from earlier on. Willy shares a piece with everyone, before telling Noodle that her mother lives at the local library and the two get reacquainted and Willy shows the Oompa Loompa an old castle, which he plans to make into a factory and the Oompa Loompa becomes Chief chocolate taster. As the credits roll, the Oompa Loompa reveals what happened to everyone, including Scrubit and Bleacher, who were under arrest, but tried to get out of it by eating the poisoned chocolates and the two have one last kiss.
