Everyone’s favourite British bear is back!
A new minute-long look at “Paddington 2” welcomes the return of the adorable hat-wearing bear from Peru. Ben Whishaw returns as the voice of the beloved children’s character created by author Michael Bond.
The clumsy, spectacled bear is still living with Mr. and Mrs. Brown in their London home. Paddington works odd jobs to help pay for a gift for Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday, but when the book he wants is stolen, a thrilling hunt commences.
Veteran British actress Julie Walters and Oscar winner Jim Broadbent return, as does “Doctor Who” star Peter Capaldi. New to the cast and playing villains are the incomparable Hugh Grant and the man behind Alastor Moody in “Harry Potter”, Brendan Gleeson.
“Paddington 2” premieres in the U.K. later this year and crawls into North America on January 12.
