“Paddington in Peru” Trailer Finds the Beloved Bear on an Amazonian Adventure

The beloved British bear is back on another adventure in Paddington in Peru.

The marmalade-devoted bear is finally back on the scene after a 7-year hiatus since Paddington 2, the third film in the critically acclaimed series. In the new film, directed by Dougal Wilson, Paddington (voiced by Ben Whishaw) heads back to Peru to visit Aunt Lucy (voiced by Imelda Staunton), who is now living at the Home for Retired Bears. Paddington’s trip to visit Aunt Lucy turns into a proper adventure when he and the Brown Family end up on a thrilling journey into the Amazon rainforest.

The third film has new faces (and voices), including Olivia Colman’s The Reverand Mother, a nun who can shred on the guitar, and Antonio Banderas’ boat captain Hunter Cabot. Hugh Bonneville returns as Mr. Brown, with Emily Mortimer stepping in to voice Mrs. Brown.

Director Dougal Wilson spoke at the trailer launch and said that the third film will explore Paddington’s origins and how he came to be rescued and live in London. “There’s a lot of missing information about what happens before that, and we thought for the third film it would be very appropriate for him to return to Peru, but this time taking his London friends and community with him and have an adventure there and, in doing so, fill in some of the missing pieces.”

Check out the trailer below. Paddington in Peru hits theaters on January 17, 2025.
