Michael Bond first brought Paddington Bear to the world in 1958 when the little explorer made an appearance in his children’s book entitled A Bear Called Paddington, the lovable character has also been featured in more than twenty other books by Bond. Paddington’s adventures have sold over 35 million books in over forty languages across 20 different countries and been the inspiration for race horses, hot air balloons, plays and even pop bands. This film, directed by Paul King, modernises the story and brings it to a whole new generation to enjoy. A much loved character, the first item to pass between the British and French tunnellers building the Channel Tunnel was a Paddington Bear in 1994!
