Ben Whishaw lends his voice to help bring life to the most adorable talking bear in London as Heyday Films and Studio Canal reveal the new UK trailer and featurette for Paddington, which you can check out below!
From the beloved novels by Michael Bond and producer David Heyman (“Harry Potter” films), Paddington tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear (voiced by Whishaw) 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.
Directed by Paul King (Bunny and the Bull), Paddington also stars Hugh Bonneville, Nicole Kidman, Sally Hawkins, Jim Broadbent, Julie Walters, Michael Gambon, and Imelda Staunton. The Weinstein Company will release the film in the U.S. on January 16, 2015.
