The live-action/hybrid family-friendly, bear-friendly film Paddington will be heading to theaters on January 16, 2015, and just days before its theatrical release a music video for “Shine” has arrived online. “Shine” was co-written by The Voice coaches who’ve previously teamed up on “Hollaback Girl” and Stefani’s new single, “Spark the Fire.” The lyric video for “Shine” features scenes of the lovable bear Paddington (voiced by Ben Whishaw) along with his human co-stars.

Directed by Paul King, the cast includes Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Jim Broadbent, Julie Walters, Peter Capaldi, Michael Gambon, Imelda Staunton, and Nicole Kidman.

The Paddington Plot:

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. The film features an entirely computer-generated bear who interacts with a cast of esteemed actors.
