The adventure continues! Paddington returns to the big screen

The stories of Paddington have enchanted the world for over 65 years. With his red hat and blue duffle coat, the lovable bear from Peru, who loves orange marmalade sandwiches, returns to the big screen on January 30, 2025 for his third adventure “Paddington in Peru”.

Together with WDR mediagroup, the license marketer for the brand in the DACH region, there are a variety of cooperation opportunities for license partners to expand Paddington’s charming world with creative products. The brand’s global success speaks for itself: over 170 licensees and a total of thousands licensed products worldwide, as well as more than 40 million books sold and 25 million plush products underline Paddington’s status as a globally relevant brand for consumer products.

After the great success of the first movie “Paddington” in 2014, which received a great response worldwide, as well as the no less successful sequel “Paddington 2” from 2017, the charming bear will be back for humorous family entertainment on January 30, 2025.

In his latest adventure, Paddington joins the Brown family on a journey back to his native Peru to visit his beloved Aunt Lucy, who now lives at the Home for Retired Bears. But what begins as a simple visit quickly turns into an unexpected journey when a mysterious secret leads Paddington and the Brown family on a daring expedition through the Amazon rainforest and up to the mountain peaks of Peru.

The film, once again produced by STUDIOCANAL (a Canal+ company), Europe’s leading film production and distribution company, features a first-class cast. Fans can once again look forward to the unmistakable voice of Elyas M’Barek, who lends his voice to the charming bear for the third time. Together with a first-class cast, including Oscar winner Olivia Colman and Antonio Banderas, “Paddington in Peru” promises to be a film highlight for the whole family.

About Paddington

For 65 years, British-born writer Michael Bond has delighted readers all over the world with his stories about Paddington, the bear from Peru, famous for his love of marmalade. The kindness and humour in the stories appeal to children and adults alike, ensuring Paddington’s enduring popularity from one generation to the next. 

HarperCollins Children’s books have published Paddington’s adventures continuously since 13th October 1958 when, as William Collins, they first introduced A Bear Called Paddington to the world.

Since then, Paddington’s adventures have been adapted several times for television and at the end of 2014 Paddington made his debut onto the big screen, a further film Paddington 2 followed in 2017 with a third in the works. The movies were produced by STUDIOCANAL, European leader in production, distribution and international sales of feature films and series, part of CANAL+ Group, major player in the creation and distribution of content worldwide. In 2020, a brand-new Paddington TV series designed for a pre-school audience, The Adventures of Paddington launched on Nickelodeon, introducing him to a whole new set of fans.
