Okay, the first one in 2014 was quite funny, but it didn’t need a sequel. However, money talks, so the bear from darkest Peru is back.
Voiced by Ben Whishaw, Paddington is now happily settled with the Brown family in Windsor Gardens, where he has become a popular member of the community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes. While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday, Paddington 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.
Paddington 2 is directed by the first film’s Paul King, and is released in the UK on November 10th.
Also stars: Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Julie Walters, Sally Hawkins, Imelda Staunton, Hugh Bonneville, Ben Miller
