Paddington Bear Movie
Please take care of this bear...
Paddington Bear comes to the big screen! The Paddington Bear movie stars Hugh Grant. In case you don't know, like many Americans until now, the story of the Paddington Bear books is about a bear from Peru whose aunt aunt packs him off to a new home in London. She tags him clearly, "Please take care of this bear. Thank you." But Paddington Bear has no idea who will actually adopt him when he arrives at Paddington station and that is where the big adventure of the Paddington Bear movie begins. Now there is a Paddington 2 movie with exclusive licensed product created just for its release.
See the movie, it's all about a bear, his family and his new friends!

Paddington Bear Movie
Michael Bond, the creator of Paddington was born in Newbury, Berkshire England in 1926 and served in the Royal Air Force in WWII. Sadly, he died in 2016 but his legacy lives on. He is clearly thoroughly British but the the Paddington bear he created has resonated around the world. After the war, Michael Bond worked as a cameraman for BBC and as a writer. The Paddington bear books he created began on Christmas eve in 1956 when he saw a lonely teddy bear in a shop and brought it home to his wife.
The bear took on a life of its own when he started to invent the bear's life story. Why the name Paddington Bear, you may ask? Or maybe you guessed, the Bonds lived near Paddington Station.
In 2018, we have Paddington bear movie 2 to carry on Michael Bond's legacy. Hugh Grant is the star of Paddington 2.
The first Paddington movie, starred Nicole Kidman. When it came out, there was an article in the The New York Times , Sunday January 11th that said: "Paddington the bear remains scrupulously polite on screen." Read about The Paddington Bear Movie in the article.
In Paddington 1, Nicole Kidman plays an evil taxidermist in the movie! Off-screen she loves Paddington and read the Paddington Bear books as a child . Kidman is quoted as saying the Paddington Bear movie "reminds us that we are all different. And to be kind." These are of course wonderful messages for kids and adults alike.
The article was in the New York Times Arts and Leisure Section. The Book Review which also had a wonderful piece by Pico Iyer about her love of the Paddington Bear books.
All our bears made by the wonderful toy maker Yottoy.
