Charming Promo Poster for David Heyman's 'Paddington Bear' Movie
We just heard about the adaptation of the classic children's books featuring Paddington Bear last month with David Heyman (of the Harry Potter franchise) producing and "The Mighty Boosh" director Paul King at the helm. Now a pretty impressive promo posters for the film has surfaced that really makes this look like it's going to be an epic journey for the little guy. Using a mix of CG and live-action, Paddington is coming from Studio Canal, but there's been no word on who will voice the bear, or what actors and actresses will make up the human characters Paddington is likely to encounter on his big adventure. See the poster below!
Here's the promo poster for Paul King's adaptation of Paddington from Bleeding Cool:
For those who don't know, Wikipedia says, "Paddington is an anthropomorphised bear. He is always polite—always addressing people as “Mr.”, “Mrs.” and “Miss” and very rarely by first names—and well-meaning, though he inflicts hard stares on those who incur his disapproval. He likes marmalade sandwiches and cocoa, and has an endless capacity for getting into trouble. However, he is known to 'try so hard to get things right.' He is an adoptive member of the (human) Brown family, and thus gives his full name as Paddington Brown." So who will play the Brown family should they make it into the film? Stay tuned.

I enjoyed watching the "Paddington the Bear" television series on our local PBS station with my two daughters when they were much younger. I agree with Ted, that the "Singin' in the Rain" homage is brilliant and one of my favorite animated shorts. One of the hallmarks of the "Paddington the Bear" series is its simplicity and basic honesty of presentation. I hope these qualities are not lost in the upcoming film version.
