There are more than a few bears represented in literature & pop culture, The Berenstains, Pooh, Corduroy, Gummy (okay, that's a candy, but still. Iconic!) but none of them love marmalade more than Paddington! January 12 Paddington 2 comes out & we're super excited to see it (Hugh Grant & Sally Hawkins alone are worth checking it out!).
Here's some official info about the sweet, mischievous bear:
Following the worldwide hit “Paddington,” one of the most successful family films of all time, this much-anticipated sequel finds Paddington (Ben Whishaw) happily settled with the Brown family in London, where he has become a popular member of the local community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes.
While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s hundredth birthday, Paddington sees 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 stars: Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey), Hugh Grant (Four Weddings and a Funeral), Sally Hawkins (Jayne Eyre), Brendan Gleeson (Into the Storm), Julie Walters (Mamma Mia) and Ben Whishaw (The Hollow Crown) as the voice of Paddington.
& here's a little trailer. Gosh, he's cute, isn't he?
If you see it this weekend we'd love to know what you think!
