Two New Stars Join Paddington in the Upcoming Sequel Movie

Two brand new cast members have been confirmed for the sequel to the beloved Paddington movie, based on the children’s book series by Michael Blonde. Hugh Grant and Brandon Gleeson will share screen time with the beloved bear, as he embarks on a quest to get his aunt Lucy the perfect 100th Birthday present, and subsequently retrieve it once it’s stolen. Paddington and the Browns will have their work cut out for them.

The first movie was a commercial success, becoming the highest grossing independent family film of all time, grossing $270 million after it’s international release. With the added star power, I don’t see how this adorable bear won’t manage to draw even larger crowds to his second big screen adventure. The film will also feature performances by Ben Whishaw,Imelda Staunton, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Madeleine Harris, and Samuel Joslin.
