STUDIOCANAL have released the first look trailer for Paul King’s highly anticipated Paddington 2.
The returning cast of Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, Ben Whishaw as the voice of Paddington and Imelda Staunton as Aunt Lucy, are joined by Hugh Grant and Brendan Gleeson.
Paddington 2 finds our heroic bear happily settled with the Brown family in Windsor Gardens, where he has become a popular member of the community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes.
While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s hundredth birthday, Paddington spots 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…
Grant plays Windsor Gardens’ local celebrity, Phoenix Buchanan, described as a vain, charming acting legend whose star has fallen somewhat in recent years, with Brendan playing ‘Knuckles’ McGinty, a notorious safe-cracker and legendary strongman who becomes an unexpected new ally for Paddington.
Paul King returns to direct the film which he co-wrote with Simon Farnaby.
