2014’s charming Paddington movie was a surprise hit, so it’s no surprise to discover that there’s going to be a sequel.
Downton Abbey star Hugh Bonneville is back in the new movie, alongside fellow returning cast members Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Madeleine Harris, Imelda Staunton and Samuel Joslin.
Ben Whishaw (Skyfall) will once again be providing the voice of the film’s titular bear.
Additions to the cast include Hugh Grant and Brendan Gleeson as new baddies, narcissistic actor Phoenix Buchanan and baker Knuckles McGinty.
Watch the trailer here:
Paddington 2 finds our favourite clumsy bear still living with Mr & Mrs Brown (Bonneville and Hawkins) in London when he embarks on a series of odd jobs to pay for a present for his Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday.
The movie arrives in UK cinemas on November 10 and gets a US release in January 2018.
Paddington is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
