Sometimes the past needs to be left in the past.
Out of all the animated cartoons from yesteryear that didn’t need a revival, Tom and Jerry is up there. But even if you’d like to humbly disagree about the merits of the cat and mouse duo, surely we can all agree on one thing: Tom and Jerry sure as hell don’t belong in Willy Wonka’s chocolate emporium.
That’s right: there’s an animated remake of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Except it’s starring Tom and Jerry. And all the Oompaloomps have been replaced with mice.
That alone warrants an orbital strike on the executives who greenlit this nightmare. The only saving grace in the full trailer below is that Charlie is at least acknowledged at the start and the end of proceedings.
Just … why. Leave Willy Wonka alone.
