Is "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory" among the most biblical films ever made?

A best-selling Christian author says the answer is a resounding yes, along with other major Hollywood productions that moviegoers would never suspect have anything to do with the Bible.

"When movies are viewed with one's spiritual eyes open, it becomes more than clear that God is secretly planting His glorious message inside many of the biggest silver-screen successes of all time."

Regarding "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory," Kovacs says the beloved 1971 musical starring Gene Wilder is one of the clearest, most succinct metaphors for key messages of the Bible.

He explains that the candyman Wonka represents Jesus, the Maker of all things good and sweet, who is testing the morals of children to determine who can receive "the most fabulous prize one could wish for," as a newscaster declares at the start of the movie.

Kovacs notes: "Throughout the film, Wonka (Jesus) pays close attention to the character of each individual, to discern if the children are filled with good or evil. Those filled with bad traits, such as the obnoxious girl Veruca Salt, the closest thing to a witch with a capital B that you'll ever see on screen, end up headed for the furnace, the reward for all the wicked who don't turn away from their transgressions."

Thank you WND. Never change.

Wait, Oompa Loompas where originally supposed to be black, not orange?

The more I look into this film, the stranger it seems.

#8 No, not by a long shot. Even if you omit the movies that are overtly biblical (The Ten Commandments, et al), Willy Wonka would still be competing with movies like "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe", "Superman Returns", "The Green Mile" or "Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers".

Don't be a Slugworth. That's one of the greatest children's movies of all time. The creepiness is a big part of the charm. It wasn't afraid to scare kids.

WOW, there is a new take on the film. Come right out of your hip pocket?

Silly me.

I always thought it a story was about a poor but good hearted boy winning the lottery and saving his family from poverty.

Every time I would win something I would sing, "I've got a golden ticket!" Like I had just escaped from all my woes.
