Storybook Cosmetics have just announced the release of their new Roald Dahl inspired eyeshadows, and it's the stuff all our childhood dreams are made of.

The brand took to Instagram to give us a little speak peek at the new Charlie and The Chocolate Factory pallet, and although they haven't given too much away, they have said that the product is part of a collaboration with Roald Dahl Estate.

The packaging is made to look like a book and even features the original illustrations from the 1964 classic.

The exact contents of the package are yet to be revealed, but one teaser post has shown a highly pigmented shimmering gold, representing that all-important golden ticket.

Sticking with the theme, we can imagine a few chocolate, blueberry and possibly oompa-lumpa inspired shades might also make an appearance.

Although there is no official launch date, Storybook Cosmetics have told fans to Stay ''tuned for more sweet updates in the next few weeks.''

In the past, the company have released collections inspired by a number of other fictional worlds including Harry Potter and Game of Thrones, and if they're anything to go by, this palette will open a world of pure imagination.   


Less than two months after the death of original Willy Wonka star, Gene Wilder, it looks like a new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie could be on the way.

But unlike the last two flicks to be inspired by Roald Dahl’s beloved book, the potential reboot will explore Willy Wonka’s mysterious past.

According to Variety, Warner Bros. are joining forces with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them producer, David Heyman, to create a movie which centres on Willy Wonka himself.

Sources say the entertainment giant has already acquired the rights to the Willy Wonka IP from the Roald Dahl Estate, but currently it is unclear as to which of the novel’s other characters will make an appearance in the film.

While many are eager to learn where the legendary chocolatier actually came from, others have taken to Twitter in opposition of move.

Many online commentators say no version of the film could live up to the original 1971 version, while others believe the movie industry as a whole needs to focus on developing new characters instead of placing classic personas in new situations.

Original Willy Wonka star Gene Wilder has died aged 83.

The comedic actor – who starred in The Producers, Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein – passed away yesterday at his home in Stamford, Connecticut.

His nephew Jordan Walker-Pearlman said Gene died of complications related to Alzheimer’s disease, Variety has reported.

In a statement Jordan said that the family were “among the lucky ones” as Gene’s condition “never stole his ability to recognise those that were closest to him, nor took control of his central gentle life-affirming core personality”.

Today the two time Oscar nominee is being remembered online for his role as famed chocolate entrepreneur Willy Wonka in the 1971 movie Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.
