The Weinstein Company debuted the first trailer for Paddington Bear’s next live-action adventure in Paddington 2. The trailer is filled with familiar faces, including new characters played by Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, and Jim Broadbent.
The first Paddington movie proved to be a big hit with audiences and critics. It was a film filled with adorable moments and clean family fun. The sequel looks to be more of the same with several of the cast members of the first, Ben Whishaw, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent, and director Paul King, all returning.
PADDINGTON 2 finds Paddington 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 hundredth 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 set for a January 2018 release date.
