When I was little, my mother’s boss gave me a Paddington Bear along with the storybook. I carried that little guy around until his was raggedy and certainly dog-eared that book! After all this time, Paddington still holds a special place in my heart.
Which is why I’m thrilled to learn that Paddington will soon be reaching out to a whole new generation of fans with the release of upcoming family film PADDINGTON (in theaters Christmas Day.)
Take a sneak peek here:
About the Film:
From the beloved novels by Michael Bond and producer David Heyman (HARRY POTTER), PADDINGTON tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear who travels to the city in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined – until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says “Please look after this bear. Thank you,” and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist.
Director: Paul King Written by: Paul King Screenplay by: Henry Paul King Cast: Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi and Nicole Kidman
