Paddington Bear's Coming To The Big Screen Soon

Section: Toys & Education

This Christmas, childhood hero Paddington Bear takes his adventure to the cinema in a fun-filled movie from the producers of Harry Potter and Gravity.

Paddington features an all-star line-up with Colin Firth providing the voice of the famous bear himself, while Hugh Bonneville (of Downton Abbey fame), Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent also voice characters in the animated film.

Based on the best-selling books by author Michael Bond, the story follows Paddington Bear from the depths of the Peruvian rainforest and the safety of Aunt Lucy to the bustling crowds at Paddington station, London, where he meets the Brown family and begins his city adventure. The character of Paddington Bear was also nominated ‘Best Animated Character’ in the 2012 British Animation Awards.

A full length film trailer, released by Studio Canal this week, shows Paddington causing chaos in the Brown household whilst he adjusts to his new life in London. His comic timing and endearing ways make for a heart-warming film to be enjoyed by kids (and big kids) all across the country.

 Keep your eyes peeled for Paddington Bear's trademark blue coat and red hat when it's released in UK cinemas on November 28th 2014.
