Paddington 2

Paddington Bear returns for a second film with all of the fun loving characters and a quest to buy a pop-up book of London as a 100th birthday present for Aunt Lucy.

The hilarious film will visually impress with London’s best cinematography.

Director Paul King keeps the spirit and classic tale of Paddington Bear alive by keeping the tone of the original books (by author Michael Bond who sadly died in June this year age 91).

The charming film Paddington 2 will delight audiences of all ages – just like the first film that was filled with humour, London’s best landmark sights, and of course Paddington’s favourite – a sweet dash of Marmalade.

The enchanting film follows Paddington Bear on his journey to buy a beautiful gift for his Aunt, where we find Paddington still living in London with the Brown family.

However disaster strikes with Paddington’s quest as everything goes wrong.

The story changes course and the book is stolen by rival Phoenix Buchanan, who has a much darker purpose for the book, and unfortunately for Paddington this lands him in Jail.

The story follows Paddington’s journey to return the book, and for determined Paddington he accepts any challenge against a bad guy.

The warm and charming sequel of Paddington never fails to capture the joy of a bear called Paddington.

The film has an all star cast starring/voiced by Hugh Grant, Ben Whishaw, Brendan Gleeson, Sally Hawkins, Hugh Bonneville, and Noah Taylor.

Paddington 2 arrives in cinemas just in time for Christmas on December 21 st, 2017.
