'Paddington 2' cast relate to the adorable bear

Warner Bros

The original "Paddington Bear" was a TV show in England from 1976-1993. Gleeson and Walters steal every scene they're in (even against Whishaw's still resounding lovable voicework), but it's Grant who truly shines brightest here. The animation work here is astonishing with lifelike features and movements that look real. Nevertheless, the surly inmates and their dreary existence of clanging, concrete and cold mush meals is nothing a good dose of Paddington kindness can't fix. The budgets are clearly higher than the first one as it was a big hit but that's not what's going to help the film. It's because these self-righteous, entitled ingrates see themselves as the centre of the universe, and Paddington as a distraction from their self-worth.

Paddington 2 is every bit as delightful, charming and moving as its predecessor, returning us to the slightly cartoonish London we first saw three years ago and giving the friendly little bear (a CG creation voiced with ideal diction by Ben Whishaw) new challenges to overcome, new friends to make and a seemingly impossible goal: finding a birthday present for his Aunt Lucy. He grows up in their family, falls in love with them and finds out what he loves most, Marmalade.

Paddington 2 picks up shortly after the first film left off, as Paddington (Ben Whishaw) has settled into a routine with the Brown family and their neighborhood.

Paddington, now happily settled with the Brown family and a popular member of the local community, picks up a series of odd jobs to buy the flawless present for his Aunt Lucy's 100th birthday, only for the gift to be stolen. He proceeds to his favorite place in London called Gruber's antique store. Paddington, of course, sailed on to London, where everything turned out right indeed: He was taken in and ultimately adopted by the Brown family, led by the sweet, free-spirited Mary () and her fretful husband, Henry (). This book would be the next best thing to actually being able to visit in person. But the mix-up still sends Paddington to the joint, a disconcerting fate for those of us who'd assumed this curious but dim-witted bear was legally a minor.

Hugh Bonneville: "I think one of the reasons the character has endured, and why it people have an affection for him, both in the book and on the screen, it's because we all have been Paddington, we have all been a stranger in a odd place". Thanks to a bit of bad timing, Paddington gets charged for the theft and winds up in prison.


Scary Knuckles ends up Paddington's friendCourtesy of Warner Bros. For example: while he's in jail, he makes the best of his stay by being positive and spreads his joyful spirit to all the felons. They also arrange to meet the bear at Paddington Station where a carnival train that might house the fortune is due to leave.

I'll start by saying this: Paddington 2 is what every good sequel should be. His motto, "If we're kind and polite, the world will be right", is the film's entirely honest moral. This quote applies to our daily routine and can and should be carried on in real life. Paddington 2 is a victor.

As in the first film, the movie is peppered with English actors having a great time, rather than just phoning it in for a pay cheque. As a teen I found it very reassuring that family is above all the most important thing. The hard stare is still as effective as before, making criminals feel hot with nervousness; the smiles and hugs are genuine enough to make you crave for one yourself.

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.
