I loved Paddington Bear when I was a little girl. I read the books, I watched cartoon series – loved that little bear. In fact, when I went to England as a teen I had to visit Paddington Station, and I had to buy myself a little Paddington Bear. I still have that little bear too!
Now I get to share that silly bear with my daughters in a brand new Paddington movie. And the movie looks hilarious. My three year old giggles every time she sees the Paddington movie trailer on TV.
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 (voiced by Ben Whishaw) 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.
Starring Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Nicole Kidman, and Ben Whishaw as the voice of Paddington.
I know you have seen the Paddington movie trailer, right? In case you haven’t, get ready to giggle.
