Paddington is a British-French media brand based on Michael Bond’s character Paddington Bear. The series started with the 2014 film of the same name. A sequel was released in 2017, and a third film is now in production (as of 2021). The films have also inspired a television series. Ben Whishaw plays Paddington Bear in all films and television series.
About Paddington 1
Following the Weinstein scandal in October 2017, the rights to the film series were sold to Warner Bros. Pictures, and this is the first and last picture distributed by The Weinstein Company in the United States. A young Peruvian bear travels to London in quest of a place to call home. He encounters the compassionate Brown family, who provides him with a temporary home when he finds himself stranded and alone at Paddington Station.
About Paddington 2
David Heyman stated in April 2015 that he will produce the sequel to the series. Paul King will also direct and co-write the film with Simon Farnaby. Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, Ben Whishaw, and Imelda Staunton were announced to return for the sequel in October 2016, joined by new cast members Hugh Grant and Brendan Gleeson. In the same month, principal photography began. The visual effects for the film were created by Framestore. Three days were spent filming in Little Venice. Shepton Mallet Prison was also used for filming.
About Paddington 3
Hugh Bonneville, star of “Paddington,” started last week on BBC Radio 2’s “The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show” that there was a “forward movement” on the project and that it was “somewhere on the horizon.” “Paddington 3,” a new instalment in the renowned film series, is in active development.
The screenplay and production teams from the last two films are back on board, which is sure to be a comfort for fans, but the narrative, actors, and filming location are all being kept under wraps. Ben Whishaw plays Paddington, while Hugh Bonneville and Sally Hawkins represent the family who takes him in.
Previous cast members have included Peter Capaldi, Nicole Kidman, and Hugh Grant, who received accolades for his performance in the second film as the evil washed-up actor Phoenix Buchanan.

The Tragedy with the Weinstein Company
The last two “Paddington” films, which were a combination of live-action and CGI, were international box office triumphs, making more than $280 million and $225 million, respectively. However, “Paddington 2” had significant challenges in the United States after its domestic distributor, The Weinstein Company, declared bankruptcy in the autumn of 2017 following the demise of co-founder Harvey Weinstein. The project had to be auctioned off to Warner Bros., and it underperformed in the US market.
The “Paddington” films have been lauded for their uplifting lessons about community, as well as their sharp wit and superb casting. Nicole Kidman portrayed the evil taxidermist Millicent Clyde in the first film, while Hugh Grant as Phoenix Buchanan, an arrogant actor and robber in the second.
The films have also been seen as pro-immigrant and anti-Brexit, with Paddington coming in London from “darkest Peru” only to be adopted by the Brown family, with parents Henry (Bonneville) and Mary (Sally Hawkins). Michael Bond, the creator of “Paddington,” who died in 2017, said he was inspired by the stories of World War II refugees who landed in London with labels around their necks.
