PLEASE LOOK AFTER THIS BEAR. THANK YOU!
Paddington follows the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear with a passion for all things British, who travels to London in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone at Paddington Station, he begins to realize the city life is not all he had imagined – until he meets the kindly Brown family, who read the label around his neck (‘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 of eye of a museum taxidermist.
The first-ever Paddington feature films was released in wide distribution throughout North America by the Weinstein Company (Bob and Harvey Weinstein) in January 2015. Based on this beloved fictional character from children’s literature created by Michael Bond in 1958, the film follows the comic misadventures of this rarest of bears, and is brought to life using a mix of CGI and live-action.
A second hilarious feature film is in development and set for release in 2017.
