Two new photos give us our first look at Paddington Bear in the Paddington adaptation arriving this Christmas...And he's kind of creepy. Voiced by Colin Firth, Paddington springs to CG life from the pages of Michael Bond's beloved children's books for an updated adventure that finds him moving to London to live with a new family. Take a look at the star of Paddington before he arrives by train in theaters everywhere.
Adapted from Michael Bond's beloved books, Paddington follows the comic misadventures of a polite young bear with an endearing talent for comic chaos.
Paddington has grown up deep in the Peruvian jungle with his Aunt Lucy who, inspired by a chance encounter with an English explorer, has raised her nephew to dream of an exciting life in London. When an earthquake destroys their home, Aunt Lucy decides to smuggle her young nephew on board a boat bound for England, in search of a better life. Arriving alone at Paddington Station, Paddington soon finds that city life is not all he had imagined - until he meets the kindly Brown family, who find him with a label tied around his neck which reads 'Please look after this bear. Thank you.' They offer him a temporary home whilst he searches for the explorer who impressed Aunt Lucy all those years before.
But when Paddington catches the eye of a sinister, seductive taxidermist, it isn't long before his home - and very existence - is under threat ...
