Beyond The Box Set

250 EpisodesProduced by Harry Chappell & John LucasWebsite

At Beyond The Box Set, we believe every great movie deserves a questionable sequel. Each week, we take a stand-alone cinema classic and compete to come up with the best, worst and most bizarre pitches to bring them back to the big screen.

Wonka: Chapter 2 (feat. Pete Allison)

Murder, fat shaming, nightmarish steamboat rides - terrifying childhood classics don't come much more traumatic than Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, the first major movie adaptation of Roald Dahl's bestselling 1964 novel.

BBC Radio DJ Pete Allison drops by this week to discuss the many, many ways in which this film delighted and scarred us in equal measure, before pitching in with some sequel ideas that conveniently ignore the fact that Charlie & The Great Glass Elevator and that Tim Burton reboot ever happened...


Beyond The Box Set is a British movie podcast with a creative twist. We don't just review screen classics - we pitch sequels to them! From Titanic and Gladiator to Out of Sight and Escape to Victory we've continued the stories of over 150 iconic movies and counting, with rave reviews from The Guardian, Apple Music and more!
