Role on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Island

On this island, Wonka takes you and Charlie Bucket into his factory. All the other kids run off and fall, and he asks you to get his cane. You do, and he and Charlie run off, so you must find them. He later appears in various places all over the factory, explaining the functions of each room. After you complete the quest, he will tell you and Charlie that he will choose one of you to inherit the factory. But then the piece of chocolate Charlie was standing on breaks and he is sent drifting along the chocolate river. You must rescue Charlie and he will inherit the chocolate factory while Mr. Willy Wonka hands you the medallion and gives you a lifetime supply of chocolate.
