Paddington Bear will be returning to the big screen over the coming months, it’s been confirmed. The nation’s favourite bear will be featuring for the third instalment of the Paddington franchise.
Paddington 3 is in active development, StudioCanal has confirmed.
The first and second films in the Paddington series were a massive success, hinting that it was only a matter of time before the creators opted to release a sequel.
Paddington was released in 2014, winning the British Academy Children’s Awards best feature film.
The film grossed £192million ($268m) worldwide from a much smaller budget, paving the way for the second film three years later.
Paddington 2 had a marginally larger budget, but still made more than £160m in the Box Office.
The movie won a number of awards after its release, including best feature film at the British Academy Children’s Awards again.
Hugh Grant featured as Phoenix Buchanan for the sequel, and he won a number of accolades for his stellar performance.
Now, fans can get ready for another action-packed adventure with Paddington Bear in London.
