On October 13th, 1958, Michael Bond introduced the world to Paddington, through his first publication, of what would become many 'A Bear called Paddington', illustrations by Peggy Fortnum.
Since then more books, television and a much acclaimed film have reignited the twinkle in Paddington's eye, propelling him forward into movie stardom and a new generation of fans.
Paddington's big screen adventure comes to UK cinemas on November 28th 2014.
From the producer of Harry Potter and Gravity, PADDINGTON comes to the big screen for the first time in an epic new adventure. Featuring an all star cast and effects courtesy of award-winning VFX company Framestore, Paddington is THE big family film of Christmas. Adapted from Michael Bond's beloved books, Paddington follows the comic misadventures of a polite young bear with an endearing talent for comic chaos
