WATCH: First Teaser Trailer For ‘Paddington’



As we have possibly mentioned before, the British children’s classic Paddington Bear is being made into a movie, with the lead role—a very English sort of Peruvian immigrant with a knack for causing trouble—being voiced by Colin Firth, and his adoptive parents Mr and Mrs Brown being played by Hugh Bonneville and Sally Hawkins.

Any film starring these three alone should be worth a look, but what if we threw in Jim Broadbent as well? And Julie Walters? And Nicole Kidman as the baddy?

And how about Peter Capaldi?

Thought so.

Here’s the first teaser trailer, in which our furry hero takes his first brief look at the London station that will give him his name:
