Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator | Roald Dahl Wiki | FANDOM powered by WikiaA lost chapter of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, deemed too wild, subversive and insufficiently moral for the tender minds of British children almost 50 years ago, has been published for the first time. The chapter, in Saturday's Guardian Review, with new illustrations by Sir Quentin Blake , was found among Dahl's papers after his death. It was chapter five in one of many early drafts of the book, one of the best-loved children's books, but was cut from the version first published in the US in and in the UK in In the chapter Charlie Bucket — accompanied by his mother, not his sprightly grandfather — and the other children are led into the Vanilla Fudge Room, where they face the sinister prospect of the Pounding and Cutting Room. The chapter reveals the original larger cast of characters, and their fates, as well as the original names of some of those who survived into later drafts. Dahl originally intended to send Charlie into the chocolate factory with eight other children, but the number was slimmed down to four.

Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator
Unlike its predecessor, this book has never been adapted to film. Dahl had intended to write a third book in the series but never finished it. Wonka intends to give to Charlie. The height to which the Elevator ascends frightens Charlie's family sending the Elevator in the wrong direction. As a result, the Elevator goes into orbit, where Wonka docks them at a Space Hotel.
The book was first published in the United States by Alfred A. Knopf, Inc. Although the original book has been filmed three times—for the big screen in and , and as an animated direct-to-video-crossover with Tom and Jerry in — The Great Glass Elevator has never been adapted on a visual medium; however it was adapted for audio by Puffin Audio Books starring Neil Answych as Charlie Bucket and Gordan Fairclough as Willy Wonka and Netflix is working on making an animated series based on the novel. The story picks up where the previous book left off, with Charlie and family aboard the flying Great Glass Elevator. The Elevator accidentally goes into orbit, and Mr. Their interception of the hotel is mistaken by approaching astronauts and listeners on Earth including the President of the United States as an act of space piracy and they are variously accused of being enemy agents, spies and aliens. Shortly after their arrival, they discover that the hotel has been overrun by dangerous, shape-changing alien monsters known as The Vermicious Knids.
Charlie returns to England to run the chocolate factory with the help of his bickering grandparents. After the Oompa Loompas unionise, Grandpa Joe suggests that offering factory tours will allow them to recruit new workers while generating extra revenue. In forty pages Dahl details a veritable smorgasbord of grotesque wonders as Wonka begins the Wonkafication of America.
