In this live-action/CGI adaptation of Michael Bond’s tales, Ben Whishaw breathes life into the marmalade-loving eponymous bear.
Following a devastating earthquake, a young Peruvian bear journeys to London in search of a new home. At Paddington station he meets the Brown family, who name him after where they found him, and offer him temporary residence. Paddington searches for a British geographer who discovered his kind decades before, hoping the man can provide him a home. But a greedy taxidermist, plotting to kill and stuff Paddington so she can become rich and famous, is hot on his trail.
Full of wit and shenanigans, this heartwarming and charming comedy is perfect for the whole family.
