Thank you to Grace Hill Media for sponsoring this post for what looks to be a fun and entertaining movie.

Do you remember Paddington Bear? I know I do! In fact, I was at the movie theater the other day, getting ready for the movie to start, and a trailer for Paddington Bear 2 comes on! I remember reading the story with my mom and always wanting marmalade because of Paddington.

I missed the first Paddington movie, but the trailer for this one makes the movie look like it is going to be an entertaining one. Following the worldwide hit Paddington, one of the most successful family films of all time, this much-anticipated sequel (in theaters January 12, 2018) finds Paddington (Ben Whishaw) happily settled with the Brown family in London, where he has become a popular member of the local community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes.

While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s hundredth birthday, Paddington sees 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.

Paddington 2 stars: Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey), Hugh Grant (Four Weddings and a Funeral), Sally Hawkins (Jayne Eyre), Brendan Gleeson (Into the Storm), Julie Walters (Mamma Mia) and Ben Whishaw (The Hollow Crown) as the voice of Paddington.
