Charlie Bucket has WON Willy Wonka's chocolate factory and is on his way to take possession of it. In a great glass elevator! But when the elevator makes a fearful whooshing noise, Charlie and his family find themselves in splendid orbit around the Earth.
And they aren't the only ones. Nearby is a spacecraft with three American astronauts and the entire staff of a luxury hotel aboard. And also in orbit is a terrifying breed of space monsters who don't think much of humans at all . . .
A daring adventure has begun, with the one and only Mr Willy Wonka leading the way!
