The first trailer for Paddington 2 has been revealed.
A follow-up to the British-French family film, Paddington 2 stars Hugh Grant, Julie Walters, Hugh Bonneville and Imelda Staunton, with Ben Whishaw returning as the voice of Paddington. This time around, the story concerns Paddington’s quest to apprehend the thief of a rare pop-up book he has bought for his Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday.
Released in 2014, the first Paddington film was a commercial and critical hit, grossing over £200m at the global box office. In his review of the film, the Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw described Paddington as “a charming and sweet-natured family film, full of wit and fun”.
Paddington 2 is released in UK cinemas on 10 November, and in the US on 12 January 2018.
