“The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar” is based on a novel by fairy tale master Roald Dahl.

The novel tells the story of a gambler named Henry Sugar. By accident, he gained the ability to see through objects and predict the future.

With this ability, he has won a lot of money in casinos.

But money didn’t make him happy, and he turned to charity, hoping to build the best orphanage in the world.

It thus started the wonderful journey of being hunted down by casinos and gangsters, going to Hollywood to find the best makeup artist for disguise, and running around the world in various capacities.

Judging from this story, the whole film will have the framework of a fantasy adventure drama.

But in the details of the story, there may be a hint of dark style. In addition to directing, Wes Anderson will also write the screenplay for the film.
