Wow… Here we have a prop reproduction Wonka Bar from the family hit classic, Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory 1971.
I am friends with majority of the cast members from the film, and have been for many years now, and Julie Dawn Cole who played Veruca Salt is a personal friend of mine.
When creating these fantastic props, Julie kindly gave me access to her original props which meant I could copy the originals perfectly, and every detail will have been captured in close and perfect detail.
Never has there been a Wonka Bar from the film that looked identical to the original… until now !!!
I spent many months looking at Julies Wonka Bar and trying to source the correct items to make it look the same as the original does, and then I had to get the correct thickness of bar material so it resembled the original, the wording also had to be also spot on, so every detail was captured perfectly.
After 6 months I showed the finished Wonka Bar to Julie and I received a wow !!! Never has she seen, or has there been a Bar that looks so identical to the original as this one does.
There were two types of bar made for the film.
There was the long shot bars, these were Cardboard bars that were used for shop shelves and for long shots like when they filmed in Bills Sweet Shop, and the second type was the wrapper bar, when used in close up shots like in the factory or when Charlie unwraps his bar.
This bar is the close up bar… the bar has been measured for size, and the thickness measured to make sure it resembled the original perfectly to Julies original bar.
Most bars were made from cardboard as the studio lights would have made them melt under the extreme heat, so Day-Glo cardboard bars were made so they were nice and bright on camera, and so they would also survive countless takes on film.
The colours for this bar are spot on !!! You can buy Wonka bars all over the internet but have they had access to a real Wonka bar ? Have they held it in their hands and been able to look over every detail to make sure the copy was identical to the original ….. The answer is no.
This Wonka Bar will be posted in a well padded protected box for added protection in transit.
If your a Wonka fan then this is a must for you as it would look fantastic framed or on your desk in a holder !!!!
Any questions please ask ……Enjoy…….
PS… I also do the Bar with a limited edition certificate and a photo of Julie with the certificate, it is also signed By Julie, please look at my other listings for this Wonka Bar.
This bar will take roughly 1 week to make from the point of ordering… so please be aware of this when purchasing.
The bar does not contain chocolate or wood….. it is very lightweight and easy to display.
