‘Paddington 2’ US Trailer Shows Paddington Making New Friends

Warner Bros Pictures has debuted a new domestic trailer for the family-friendly film, Paddington 2. The Paddington sequel comes from BAFTA-nominated director Paul King (Paddington, Come Fly with Me, The Mighty Boosh), with King co-writing the script along with Simon Farnaby (Yonderland, Mindhorn). The Paddington films are based on Michael Bond’s beloved bestsellers featuring the adorable Paddington Bear.

Paddington 2 stars Golden Globe nominee Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey, The Monuments Men), Sally Hawkins (Maudie, The Shape of Water), Brendan Gleeson (The Guard, Into the Storm, In Bruges), Julie Walters (Billy Elliot, Educating Rita), Jim Broadbent (Iris, Game of Thrones), Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who, Getting On, Torchwood), Hugh Grant (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually), and Ben Whishaw (The Hollow Crown, In the Heart of the Sea) as the voice of Paddington. The cast also includes Madeleine Harris (The White Queen, Me and Mrs. Jones), Samuel Joslin (The Impossible, Houdini and Doyle), and Imelda Staunton (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1).

The PG-rated movie was produced by David Heyman (the Harry Potter film franchise and the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them franchise). Executive producers include Rosie Alison, Jeffrey Clifford, Alexandra Ferguson Derbyshire, Ron Halpern, and Didier Lupfer.

The Plot: Following the worldwide hit Paddington, one of the most successful family films of all time, this much-anticipated sequel finds Paddington (Whishaw) happily settled with the Brown family in London, where he has become a popular member of the local community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes. While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s hundredth birthday, Paddington sees a unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber’s antique shop, and embarks upon a series of odd jobs to buy it. But when the book is stolen, it’s up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief.
