Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: First shots

Tim Burton movie to hit PC and consoles this summer in platforming stylee

Take 2 has just released the first shots of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the game based on the forthcoming remake of the classic movie.

Due for release across all major platforms in July (bar DS), the game's set inside Willy Wonka's famous confectionary plant and features a slew of environments, both from the new Tim Burton movie and from the original book.

We're expecting a relatively straightforward platforming experience from the game, although it should at least be interesting to look at if it retains the surreal aesthetics of the movies.

And, yes, we can confirm that the Oompa-Loompas do make an appearance.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will be released for PS2, Xbox, Gamecube, GBA and PC in July
