The much-anticipated movie sequel Paddington 2 launches next month on 10th November and is destined to become the must-see film of the season. Paddington 2 picks up where the first movie left off and sees our favourite bear from Peru settled in with the Brown family in Windsor Gardens, where he has become a popular member of the community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes.
Loved for generations Paddington Bear was created by Michael Bond in 1958 – who sadly passed away this year aged 91 – and his books, spanning 59 years have sold over 35 million copies continue to delight readers young and old. Paddington s once again being brought to life on the big screen by Heyday Films and STUDIOCANAL productions. The new movie sees Paddington searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s hundredth birthday, when he spots a unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber’s antique shop, and embarks upon a series of odd jobs to buy it. But when the book is stolen, it’s up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief…
