* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Mike Teavee is supposed to be from New Mexico but speaks in a stereotypically New York fashion when he's trying to sound like a tough guy (probably RuleOfFunny). And in Charlie's hometown, there's a mix of American and British accents as part of the intentional evocation of WhereTheHellIsSpringfield

** Slugworth is only given a brief mention in the book as one of Wonka's candy making rivals. Here, he's portrayed as a CorruptCorporateExecutive who bribes the golden ticket finders with money and a better life in exchange for stealing an Everlasting Gobstopper from Wonka. Ultimately subverted when "Slugworth" reveals himself to be an employee of Wonka who subjects the kids to the SecretTestOfCharacter.

* AdaptationalVillainy:
** Violet was very much a DesignatedVillain in the book. While not as mean as she is in the 2005 film, here she's shown to be far more arrogant than she is in the book - as well as frequently fighting with Veruca. There's also a touch more AdaptationalHeroism, as she comes across as the most pleasant of the brats and she's the only one who tells Veruca to shut up when she's being annoying.

* AdaptedOut:
** Charlie's father is stated to have died sometime before the story begins; the director explains in the making-of book ''Pure Imagination'' that the character was effectively superfluous.
** Prince Pondicherry isn't mentioned at all, likely because it would have been too hard to dramatize that {{Flashback}} convincingly with 1970s tech.

* WhatDoesThisButtonDo: In the Wonkavator scene Wonka says He went through out the entire factory, Except for one place he never went to. He let Charlie Bucket press the ''"Up and Out"''' Key (which is surrounded by a red ring). And it took them to up and out!
-->'''Mr. Wonka''': Here we go! Not sure what's going to happen! Faster, Faster! If we don't get enough speed, We will never make the day go through!
