That would be SO different!

Well, I don’t know about you, but I know I’m incredibly excited about the totally new and revolutionary idea of sex-swapping Willie Wonka. Then again, Willie Wonka as a woman would almost certainly be an improvement from the obvious pedophile he was in the last two films:

Willy Wonka could reportedly return to screens as a woman in a new prequel film.

Bosses at Warner Bros. are allegedly considering taking on a female actress to play the role of the iconic chocolatier, after two previous adaptations starred Johnny Depp and Gene Wilder.

It’s also been reported that after Warner Bros. acquired the rights to the character from the Dahl estate in 2016, they are in the process of putting together a production team for the film.

I’m most curious about what they will call her. Vaggie Vonka? Baba Yanka?
