Hold on to your adorable hats as everyone’s favourite bear from darkest Peru is back…and this time, he’s cleaning windows.
Having charmed the pants off audiences around the world with his first outing, Paddington 2 sees Ben Whishaw return as the voice of the oh-so clumsy bear in a duffel coat who’s still living with Mr & Mrs Brown (Hugh Bonneville and Sally Hawkins) and their family at 32 Windsor Gardens, London. This time around, Paddington embarks on a series of odd jobs to pay for a present for his Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday. But when the book he has his eye on is stolen, a hunt for the thief ensues...
Joining the original cast of Julie Walters, Peter Capaldi and Jim Broadbent, there’s two potential baddies in the form Hugh Grant’s fabulously named Phoenix Buchanan and Brendan Gleeson as the equally brilliantly-named Kunckles McGinty, a baker and safecracker.
Behind the camera, Paul King returns to direct a script co-written by him and Mindhorn actor and writer, Simon Farnaby.
Paddington 2 will don it’s duffel coat and hat and appear in cinemas on 10th November.
