Waititi is set to direct, write and produce two animated series of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory for Netflix.

Reports say that Netflix is producing two new series, original animated series following the success of Klaus, which are going to be based on Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.  The first is a new remake in animated for and the other one is with the Oompa-Loompas.  Waititi is going to produce the series together with Netflix and The Roald Dahl Story Company. And Netflix president Melissa Cobb for Original Animation has commented:

“I grew up reading Dahl stories and lived large parts of my young life in those magical worlds, so finding just the right creative partner to bring Willy Wonka, Charlie and the Oompa-Loompas to life in animation was a daunting task…until Taika walked into the room. Then, it was really obvious. If Dahl had created a character of a filmmaker to adapt his work, I’m pretty sure he would have created Taika,

The company behind the story has also thought that Waititi is a proper choice for this project.

“In the words of Willy Wonka himself – we are ‘Delighted! Charmed! Overjoyed!’ with Taika’s appointment on this project. There is something undeniably Wonka-esque about Taika’s creative flair and inimitable sense of humor and we cannot think of anyone more perfectly suited to leading the creative charge on these first of their kind, feature quality Netflix shows,” added Gideon Simeloff on Roald Dahl Story Company.

Taiki Waititi has directed successes such as Thor: Ragnarok for Marvel and will direct the upcoming  Thor: Love and Thunder just like Jojo Rabbit.
