Default Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory - 10/6

Warner will be releasing Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory on Oct. 6 with a $34.99 SRP and it comes with a 38 page booklet, so it looks to be a digibook.

Excellent, I'd much rather have this than "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory".

Kinda wish it wasn't a digibook (I've grown rather bored with them -- and since they don't close up all the way -- they really should come with cardboard slipcovers at least -- they are inferior to the digipak that Warner employed on DVD for it's Two-Disc Special Edition series before they defaulted to Amaray cases).

That won't stop me from buying though.

One is a beloved classic and one has already been largely forgotten; we'll leave it at that.

I don't love the first one, and haven't forgotten the second so I'll just continue to wait for my real version to arrive I guess.

I think both versions are good, and if you like weird, then Burton's version is absolutely amazing. Remakes always have a hard time because many people won't give the new version a proper chance.
