Break out the marmalade – it’s time to celebrate! Paddington, the lovable bear we came to know and love from the books by author Michael Bond is making his way to the big screen this Christmas!
I am excited to introduce one of my favorite literary characters to my children this year. I know they are going to fall in love with Paddington, just as I did years ago. I have a feeling my kids will soon be wanting to look after a bear of their own.
This Christmas, a small bear will make a big splash.
From the beloved novels by Michael Bond and producer David Heyman (HARRY POTTER), PADDINGTON tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear who travels to the city in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined – until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says “Please look after this bear. Thank you,” and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist.
