Narrator: This is a story of an ordinary little boy named Charlie Bucket. He was not faster, or stronger, or more clever than other children. His family was not rich or powerful or well-connected; in fact, they barely had enough to eat. Charlie Bucket was the luckiest boy in the entire world. He just didn't know it yet.

How did Charlie get invited to the Chocolate Factory?
Charlie Bucket (Freddie Highmore), along with four other children, each find one of five golden tickets randomly placed inside Wonka candy bars. The other four tickets are found by Augustus Gloop (Philip Wiegratz), a gluttonous German boy; Veruca Salt (Julia Winter), a spoiled English girl; Violet Beauregarde (AnnaSophia Robb), a gum-chewing American girl; and Mike Teavee (Jordan Fry), an American boy who, like his name, is obsessed with television.
