New images have just been released for the much-anticipated film PADDINGTON. Adapted from Michael Bond’s beloved and best-selling books, Paddington follows the comic misadventures of a polite young bear with an endearing talent for comic chaos.

Paddington has grown up deep in the Peruvian jungle with his Aunt Lucy who, inspired by a chance encounter with an English explorer, has raised her nephew to dream of an exciting life in London. When an earthquake destroys their home, Aunt Lucy decides to smuggle her young nephew on board a boat bound for England, in search of a better life. Arriving alone at Paddington Station, Paddington soon finds that city life is not all he had imagined – until he meets the kindly Brown family, who find him with a label tied around his neck which reads ‘Please look after this bear. Thank you.’ They offer him a temporary home whilst he searches for the explorer who impressed Aunt Lucy all those years before. But when Paddington catches the eye of a sinister, seductive taxidermist (Nicole Kidman), it isn’t long before his home – and very existence – is under threat ...

Ben Whishaw is the voice behind the lovable Paddington after Colin Firth pulled out of the film. Also lending their star power to Paddington are Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey, Notting Hill, The Monuments Men), Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine, Godzilla, Happy Go Lucky) , Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who, World War Z) and Harry Potter stars Jim Broadbent and Julie Walters. Samuel Joslin (The Impossible) and Madeline Harris play the children in the film.

Paddington is set for release in Australia on 11 December.
