Paddington Bear is back, and this time, he's embarking on an exciting journey to his roots in Paddington in Peru. The long-awaited third installment of the beloved movie franchise is set to start production on July 24, and we've got all the details on Paddington's most thrilling escapade yet.
Picture Paddington discovering a whole new playground, filled with exciting challenges and never-before-seen escapades. He'll be making his way through the lush Amazon rainforest, unearthing ancient Incan ruins, and, of course, never straying too far from his beloved marmalade sandwiches!
As he travels through Peru, Paddington's bound to meet some super interesting characters who'll help him solve the mysteries of his past and learn more about where he comes from. These new pals will bring extra heart and warmth to the story, giving us even more of those feel-good moments and life lessons we've come to love in the Paddington movies.
Plus, the gorgeous Peruvian setting is going to be a feast for the eyes! We're talking jaw-dropping landscapes, vibrant traditional outfits, and a whole bunch of amazing wildlife. The creative minds behind the movie will have a blast bringing all these elements together, making for a truly immersive and visually stunning experience.
It's been six years since Paddington's last big-screen appearance, and fans have been eagerly waiting for more marmalade-filled antics. The last time we caught up with Paddington, he was having an unforgettable tea-time with the late Queen Elizabeth II.
The upcoming movie will see our favorite brown bear returning to his birthplace in deepest, darkest Peru where he'll find himself in a series of sticky situations that will both challenge him and tug at our heartstrings.
Reuniting the powerhouse team of Studiocanal, which is fully financing the movie, and Heyday, producers of the first two Paddington films as well as the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts movies, Paddington in Peru promises to be a heartwarming journey that will capture the imaginations of audiences around the world.
While the plot details are still a closely guarded secret, we know that the story comes from the creative minds of Paddington 1 & 2 collaborators Paul King, Simon Farnaby, and Mark Burton. The screenplay is penned by Burton, Jon Foster, and James Lamont, and music videos and commercials director Dougal Wilson will be making his feature film debut as the director for this highly anticipated threequel.
Although there's no official word yet on whether Ben Whishaw will return to voice Paddington, we're confident that the combination of returning and new cast members will create an unforgettable cinematic experience. With a rich legacy of talent from previous films, including Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Imelda Staunton, and Michael Gambon, we can't wait to see who will join Paddington on his journey back to his origins.
So prepare for a rollercoaster of emotions, as we follow Paddington Bear on his most heartwarming and thrilling adventure yet – Paddington in Peru.
