Paddington is one of the world’s most iconic bears. In the UK, he’s a bit of a fan favourite and come December, he’ll also be a bonafide celebrity. Paddington sees the beloved bear come to life on the silver screen as he embarks on his very own adventure.
Voiced by Ben Whishaw, the live-action feature based on the series of popular children’s books by Michael Bond, sees a young Peruvian bear with a passion for all things British travelling to London in search of a home.
Finding himself lost and alone at Paddington Station, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined – until he meets the kindly Brown family, who offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of Millicent (Nicole Kidman), a museum taxidermist who harbours evil intentions.
Paddington opens in cinemas in December.
