GENE SAUL — 6 WILLY WONKA & THE CHOCO­LATE FAC­TORY

what did you think of the film, Gene?

I think it’s very good and a bit... funny.

who is your favourite char­ac­ter?

I like Char­lie and his grandpa. They’re nice. They’re funny and they look af­ter each other.

Did you like the oompa-loom­pas?

I love their songs. [Sings] “Oom­paloompa, doo­p­ity-do...” They’re very clever with words.

what do you think hap­pens to the naughty chil­dren?

It doesn’t show you. I think maybe they learn their les­son and go home.

who is the naugh­ti­est ticket win­ner?

Veruca Salt is the naugh­ti­est and the rud­est. She’s so rude! She wants ev­ery­thing… and her dad never says, “no” to her. Ever. She re­ally is a bad egg!

a lot of peo­ple find the film scary. Did you?

Yes. The bit at the be­gin­ning out­side when the strange man says, “No­body ever goes in and no­body ever comes out again,” is the creepi­est! Oh! And when they’re on the boat on the choco­late river. It goes faster and faster un­til you’re like, “AAAAAGH! STOOOOOP!” I can’t watch when it looks like Char­lie and Grandpa are go­ing to get chopped up by the mas­sive fan when they’re float­ing with the bub­bles. That’s the scari­est bit.

there’s an­other ver­sion of this film. would you watch that?

Maybe. To see if it’s as good.

would you like to go to willy wonka’s choco­late fac­tory?

Yeah… but I’d def­i­nitely try to be good.
