Do you remember reading books about Paddington the Bear when you were a kid? It’s hard to believe that he is 56 years old today, June 25! (This is according to one of the Brown family’s birthday edicts that marked Paddington’s birthdate as the day that he came to live with them.) Now, Paddington will be delighting a new generation of children with his comic misadventures in a brand-new movie to be released on Christmas Day!
Check out the movie trailer below. I dare you not to laugh!
About the movie:
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.
Cast: Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi and Nicole Kidman
I am even more excited to see that the movie stars one of my favorite actors, Hugh Bonneville, the star of Downton Abbey!
