Lovable and cuddle-able Paddington Bear is back in the first full-length trailer for “Paddington 2”.
The two-and-a-half minute trailer paints an exciting, yet equally aww-worthy adventure from everyone’s favourite marmalade-loving bear. The lighthearted animated comedy sees the bear from Peru face-off against a diabolical Hugh Grant.
Paddington Bear is voiced by Ben Whishaw, who also stars alongside Grant in Amazon and BBC’s upcoming six-part series, “A Very English Scandal”.
At one point in the trailer, the fuzzy mammal winds up in prison with dangerous, hard-nosed prison convicts… all dressed in pink!
The upcoming animated flick is a sequel to 2014’s successful “Paddington”, originally based on the 1958 children’s book A Bear Called Paddington. The first film generated $268 million worldwide against an estimated budget of $52.5 million.
“Paddington 2” premieres in the U.K. Nov. 10, before moving to North American theatres Jan. 12, 2018.
