The movie is based on Michael Bond’s tales about a Peruvian bear found at Paddington Station and well know to those in the UK because of the illustrated story stories on television many years ago.

Paddington is then adopted into the Brown household (played by Hugh Bonneville and Sally Hawkins). Their crabby next-door neighbour Mr Curry, is Peter Capaldi role.

Mr Curry gets Paddington to run dubious errands for him which can result in problems. Peter worked on the movie for just over a month before taking up his Doctor Who duties. The film also stars Julie Walters as Mrs Bird, the Browns’ housekeeper.

Paddington (2014) – Official Lowdown

From the beloved novels by Michael Bond and producer David Heyman (Harry Potter), Paddington tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear (voiced by Firth) 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.

Cast includes: Colin Firth who is voicing Paddington Bear, Peter Capaldi, Jim Broadbent, Sally Hawkins, Hugh Bonneville, Julie Walters and Nicole Kidman. Screenplay and Directed by Paul King. Released by The Weinstein Company.
