With a cast billing such as this film has, this film could be extraordinary. Definitely will be a great children’s film. From The Weinstein Company and director Paul King comes the live-action look at the bear we all love… “Paddington”
“A young Peruvian bear finds himself lost and alone in Paddington Station in London, England. To many, this bear is very different than you might think. He is alive. Soon after taking the name “Paddington”, he starts to realize that living in a city is not all that he has imagined. This is of course until he meets the Brown family. With open arms, they take him in and offer him a temporary haven. For Paddington, life is becoming very sweet, until he catches the eye of a museum taxidermist.”
