Disclosure: I was able to view a special screening of this movie free of charge. However, all opinions are 100% my own.
About the movie:
From the beloved novels by Michael Bond comes PADDINGTON – the story of the misadventures of a young Peruvian bear who travels to London in search of a home. When he arrives at Paddington Station, he meets the Brown family who read the label around his neck that says "Please look after this bear. Thank you." and offer him a temporary place to stay. Paddington's luck seems to have changed for the better until he catches the eye of a museum taxidermist. Will Paddington be able to escape the museum taxidermist? You're going to have to watch the movie to find out!
My Personal Thoughts:
I LOVED the Paddington books and shows as a child so when I found out that there was going to be a movie, I was scared that they were going to butcher it like so many have done with other cartoon & book characters that I love. Once I saw the previews, I was super excited. It looked good! I'm not surprised though – it was produced by David Heyman from Harry Potter! I was sad when they pushed back the opening date but the wait was worth it. I was able to see a special screening of Paddington with my family & let me tell you guys – they did such an amazing job! Paddington looks amazing – the cutest little bear around! The story follows the books with a twist & it is so cute & funny – something kids & adults will love! Everyone in the theater was laughing. We loved it & highly recommend it! Be sure to check it out – it's out in theaters TODAY – you'll be sure to love it! 😀
