Movie Info

PADDINGTON 2 finds Paddington happily settled with the Brown family in Windsor Gardens, where he has become a popular member of the community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes. While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy's hundredth birthday, Paddington spots a unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber's antique shop, and embarks upon a series of odd jobs to buy it. But when the book is stolen, it's up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief... Helmed by twice BAFTA nominated director Paul King, PADDINGTON 2 is co-produced by multi award-winning David Heyman / Heyday Films (producer of all eight of the HARRY POTTER films, GRAVITY, THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PYJAMAS, FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM) and StudioCanal, who will also distribute in the UK, France, Germany, Australia and New Zealand. PADDINGTON is based on the best-selling and internationally adored series of children's stories by British author Michael Bond, which have sold more than 35 million copies worldwide, been translated into over 40 languages and captured the imagination of children and adults around the globe.

Critic Reviews for Paddington 2

All Critics (49) | Top Critics (4)

A sure-footed, sweet-natured family comedy which isn't set at Christmas, but which glows with so much warmth and fun that it might well be a staple of festive television for years to come.

A family adventure that's the right sort of heartwarming, delivering real human emotion through the medium of a small bear.

October 31, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Paddington 2 won't save the world, sadly, but it's existence makes everything just that tiny bit better and more, well, bearable.

October 26, 2017 | Full Review…

Another near-pawfect family entertainment, honoring the cozy, can-do spirit of Bond's stories while bringing them smoothly into a bustling, diverse 21st-century London - with space for some light anti-Brexit subtext to boot.

The suspense-thriller plot involving a frame-up is throwaway for anyone older than 12, but there is so much going on - the Wes-Anderson-meets-Studio-Ghibli visuals, the skits, Grant's over-the-top work - that the older ones will be kept happy.

December 13, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Undeniably charming and infectiously disarming, it's almost impossible not to be swept away or even find a fault in the follow-up to Paul King's 2014's Paddington.
