If you were near Yorkdale, or perhaps even in the shopping mall, you would have noticed a giant crowd on Wednesday. That’s because Timothée Chalamet was in the building.

The global film star dropped into the mall’s Immersive World of Wonka experience, which is at Yorkdale until January 2nd.

The “Wonka” star posed with fans, and smiled for every camera – and there were a lot.

The World of Wonka experience is a world-exclusive and is brought to life in celebration of Warner Bros. Pictures’ newest flick.

Visitors have the chance to tap into the candy maker’s imagination and experience the magic firsthand through visual content displays and even replica props.

There’s also a 30-foot-tall chocolate-candy cherry blossom tree and a lifesize Wonka chocolate bar.

And you’ll definitely want to snap a pic with the whimsical floating Wonka photo-op.

Sadly, Timothée Chalamet is not there for every photo-up, but if you were lucky you caught him on Wednesday!
