Paddington 2 All Set To Spread Joy In India On This Date!

Following the worldwide hit Paddington, the most successful non-US studio family film of all time, the much-anticipated sequel Paddington 2 is all set to release in India on January 12, 2018 simultaneously with its release in the US. In Paddington 2 the enthusiastic young bear devotes himself to buying a present for his Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday and in the ensuing chaos, winds up in prison, framed for a crime he didn’t commit.

Speaking on returning as the director of the sequel of 2014 acclaimed children’s classic, director Paul King said:

“We had a lot of ideas that never made their way into the first film because they always felt like they belonged in a sequel, rather than an origin story. It always felt like it would be fun to see Paddington at work and he’s such a decent character that it felt it could be emotionally satisfying to see him fall prey to an injustice.”

Joining the cast of this second installment are Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson and Sanjeev Bhaskar. Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Madeleine Harris and Samuel Joslin are returning as the lead cast of the film.  Ben Whishaw returns as the beloved voice of  Paddington and Imelda Staunton as Aunt Lucy.

Talking about his character Hugh Grant said:

“I spent a lot of the early part of my career in the 1980s doing plays with memorable theatrical types. I pillaged them all for this character, for the almost unendurable, overweening vanity of the man. He can’t see beyond his own beauty and talent, and that makes him do things that I’m sure he’s ashamed of.”

Paddington 2 is the sequel to the hugely successful 2014 movie Paddington, which was based on the best-selling and internationally adored books by British author, the late great Michael Bond. His work has sold more than 35 million copies throughout his career.
