How to watch Wonka now
At the time of writing, you can only watch Wonka in cinemas. In the UK, it opened on 8 December 2023, and in the US it debuted on 15 December 2023.
You can watch the trailer below:
When could Wonka be available on VOD?
There are rumours that Wonka will be releasing between mid-to-late January on VOD, but right now we cannot verify these. These dates would make sense, considering that Warner typically distributes its blockbusters on VOD platforms around a month after release.
That said, Wonka is still continuing to perform strongly, so the wait could be longer. We will update this article when we have more information, but you can still pre-order it on Prime Video in the US (for $24.99) or Prime Video and iTunes in the UK (for £19.99).
When could Wonka release on DVD/Blu-ray?
The DVD and Blu-ray premiere date for Wonka is yet to be announced. However, physical copies of Warner Bros. films are typically available two-to-three months after the theatrical release. Therefore, we anticipate you will be able to buy Wonka between February and March 2024.
The film is already available for pre-order. In the UK, you can find it on hmv.com – the DVD edition is priced at £9.99. In the USA, you can pre-order Wonka on Amazon – the DVD is priced at $19.96, and Blu-ray costs $24.96
When could Wonka be available to stream in the US and UK?
The streaming release date for Wonka hasn’t been confirmed yet. However, based on previous releases like Barbie, we expect it to land sometime in the spring.
In the US, Wonka will surely hit Max, the streaming home of Warner Bros. productions. The basic ad-supported subscription costs $9.99 per month/$99.99 per year, though there are ad-free options available too.
UK-based viewers will likely see Wonka on Now and Sky Cinema, the two platforms that typically get new releases from Warner Bros seeing as Max isn’t available here. A Now Cinema Membership costs £9.99 per month. However, there are often discounts for new customers.
