Where to Stream Wonka Online

Distributed by Warner Bros., Wonka is expected to stream on Max (formerly HBO Max) after its current theatrical run is over. Parent company Warner Bros. Discovery has yet to announce a streaming release date. Most Warner Bros. films — like Barbie, The Nun II and Blue Beetle — were available to stream on Max between three and four months after their theatrical debut, so you’ll likely be able to stream Wonka there sometime in April.

In the meantime, Wonka in 4K Ultra HD is available digitally to buy for $25 or to rent for $20 on Prime Video, Apple TV and other video-on-demand platforms. Tickets to see the film in theaters are still available at Fandango.com and elsewhere.
