If you’re anything like us, you’ve got a soft spot in your heart for Paddington. You know, the cute bear who finds himself a home with the Brown family in London. Only after an incredibly treacherous road to getting there.
The first film, released in 2014 was hailed as one of the best family films, and with good reason. Not only was it a story of triumph and love, it was a story of finding family.
In Paddington’s next adventure, there’s a road to finding something once more. However, this time it’s a present for his Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday. Of course, it’s not just ‘that easy’. This time Paddington finds himself up against a thief and some prison time. Quite a storyline if you ask us.
However, it’s not all bad for Paddington. He makes some great friends on the way, meets a cute dog (honestly, who didn’t immediately fall in love with that pup in the alley?) and he spreads a message of positivity for audiences around the world.
Paddington looks for the good in all of us, and somehow, he finds it.
We could certainly use a little more good. Paddington hits U.S theaters on January 12th.
