Recently nominated for two BAFTA awards including Outstanding British Film and Adapted Screenplay, StudioCanal is pleased to announce that the magical adventure of the UK's most beloved bear, Paddington, will be available to own on DVD and Blu-on 23rd March 2015.
Adapted from Michael Bond's beloved books, Paddington follows the comic misadventures of a polite young Peruvian bear with a passion for all things British, who travels to London in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone at Paddington Station, he begins to realise that city life is not all he had imagined - until he meets the kind Brown family, who read the label around his neck ("Please look after this bear. Thank you.") and offer him a temporary haven.
But little do the Browns realise just how much comic mayhem one young bear will bring to their family life, and when this rarest of bears catches the eye of a sinister, seductive taxidermist, it isn't long before his home - and very existence - is under threat ...
Produced by David Heyman (The Harry Potter series) Paddington, is a timeless and universal story written and directed by Paul King. With Ben Whishaw as the voice of Paddington Bear, the film's all-star cast includes Hugh Bonneville, Nicole Kidman, Sally Hawkins, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi and Julie Walters.
