Do you remember the first Paddington movie? Are you also British? If you answered ‘yes’ to both of these questions, strap in, because there’s finally a trailer for Paddington 2.
If you aren’t familiar with the first film, it’s about a cute Peruvian bear that somehow ends up in England, and starts to warm the hearts of everyone he encounters. It’s that simple, and judging by this new trailer, the sequel looks to deliver on that premise once again, possibly with even more whimsy than the first Paddington.
It’s also worth noting that this sequel is packed with even more British stars than the first film. This time around, the titular Paddington (voiced by Ben Whishaw) will be joined by Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Peter Capaldi, Sally Hawkins, and even more, if you can believe it.
While the first film flew under the radar for many of us in the states, it still made $76 million in the US and $268 million worldwide. It’s entirely possible that the sequel will end its run with even more revenue due to the star-power featured in this new outing.
Paddington 2 is once again directed by Paul King, and will arrive in theaters on January 12, 2018.
