“Paddington 2 is every bit as charming as the first. The film is a pure delight, as sweet and sharp as, well, marmalade, really.” – Olly Richards, Empire
Following in the furry footsteps of the popular family film, Paddington, this much-anticipated sequel finds Paddington the Bear (voice of Ben 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, who is a master of disguise. Based on the classic children’s books by Michael Bond, Paddington 2 reunites many of the original film’s cast while welcoming others in new roles, including Hugh Bonneville (“Downton Abbey”), Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water), Brendan Gleeson, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi and Hugh Grant. (Dir. by Paul King, 2017, UK, 103 mins., Rated PG)
