Warner Bros Discovery Global Consumer Products (WBDGCP) is unveiling a sweet collection of global merchandise to celebrate the highly-anticipated release of Warner Bros Pictures’ big screen holiday spectacle, Wonka, arriving in theaters and in IMAX internationally beginning 6 December 2023 and in North America on December 15, 2023. Based on the extraordinary character at the center of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Roald Dahl’s most iconic children’s book and one of the best-selling children’s books of all time, “Wonka” tells the wondrous story of how the world’s greatest inventor, magician and chocolate-maker became the beloved Willy Wonka we know today. Warner Bros Discovery is rolling out the candy-colored carpet to celebrate the film with a full spectrum of premium products from sought-after licensees such as Converse, Fossil, Funko and more, while exclusive retail partner Bloomingdale’s will host iconic Wonka window displays and has unveiled The Carousel @ Bloomingdale’s: Wonka, an online and in-store shop filled with fun fashions, accessories and home goods inspired by the famous chocolatier.
Bloomingdale’s invites shoppers to step into a world of imagination with stunning new “Wonka”-inspired holiday window displays and shopping experiences in-store and online, including an immersive Wonka Pop-Up Virtual Shop, a whimsical space filled with holiday gifting and Wonka products, and an opportunity to participate in a scavenger hunt for different chocolate candy inspired by the fanciful chocolates in the film.
Starting tomorrow, Nov. 16 at 6 pm, Bloomingdale’s will unveil its iconic window display along Lexington Avenue at the 59th Street flagship in New York City, with a night of festive celebrations, philanthropy, and must-see performances. This year’s theme celebrates the Best Holiday Ever, and is inspired by the look, feel and magic of “Wonka.” The wonder of the holidays will come to life with colorful, bright windows full of sparkle and oversized candies and chocolates, inspired by the highly-anticipated film. Inside, Bloomingdale’s experiential shopping space “The Carousel” has been transformed into a stunning Wonka-esque emporium where shoppers will be transported into a Wonka-land filled with colorful luxury gifts across categories, including Wonka-inspired shoes, bags, barware and accessories by Kurt Geiger.
