Brief Synopsis:
Enjoy the Christmas spirit with a fanedit of the modern movie adaptation of the beloved Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl! Faneditor theryaney has made a few changes to this family movie that includes a lengthy colour-correction of the film that portrays snow more realistically, the removal of Willy Wonka's flashbacks and the entire subplot involving his childhood, and also an ending closer to the original book.
Intention:
My main intention was to cut the one thing that annoyed me the most about this movie, which was the whole subplot with little Willy Wonka and Dr. Wonka. I then thought how I could expand my edit and decided to do a colour-correction of the blue snow and other scenes that looked really unrealistic. I didn't do anymore edits because as a kid I really loved this movie and it has a special place in my heart so I'm not going to touch it further.
Other Sources:
Danny Elfman's score for this movie (Track 'Finale")
Special Thanks:
Mr.Lovebucket for inspiration through his Book Cut Edition
Release Information
MP4/M4V/MOV
Editing Details:
Used Final Cut Pro X 10.4.4's white balancing tool to colour correct the scenes.
Cuts and Additions:
- Added fanedit.org intro
- Added "A fanedit by theryaney" to the opening credits and added title card below Christopher Lee and Blair Dunlop saying "(Excluded)" to fit with the edits made
- Colour corrected every outdoor scene so the horrible blue snow is now white.
- Also colour corrected some of the Buckets' home if it looks too blue to my eyes.
- Colour corrected scenes of the toothpaste factory
- Colour corrected the scene in the Salts' home
- Removed all of Willy Wonka's flashbacks and him being incapable of saying "parents"
- Colour corrected the Television Room.
- New ending inspired by Mr.Lovebucket's Book Cut Edition, and added the track "Finale" from the soundtrack to cover up the transition
- The narrator is also removed, and covered up using the previously mentioned "Finale" track.
- Added "The End" title card
- Added "A fanedit by Theryaney" credit

I was never a big fan of Burton/Depp version, prefer Gene Wilder's version (RIP)

Now, when it comes to this edit, I agree with the previous reviewer, I much prefer this more than the theatrical cut! Hats to theryaney!

A significant improvement over the original, and none of my family members noticed it was an edit until the final scene. This had to do with familiarity with the original, and was not a reflection on that portion of the edit, which I thought was handled excellently. A wonderful addition to the editing community and my personal collection. Thank you!
