TOKYO -- It's been over 40 years and people still want a piece of Willy Wonka's chocolate--or should we say, 'golden ticket.' So, that's why Starbucks is using the brand to brew up another Willy Wonka-inspired roastery in Tokyo.

Just like the one in Seattle, customers will be able to sample a variety of whimsical beverages in a huge tasting room! The company also plans to build two more in NYC and Shanghai.

Besides coffee shops, Warner Bros. says there is a Wonka movie in the works too! But, some fans on Twitter are saying after Gene Wilder's death another remake of the 1971 film is way too soon.


Wonder what Mr. Wonka would say about all of this?
