Yes, indeed. The wonderful, imaginative storybook about the amazing bear with the red hat has actually been made into a lovable, cute and cuddly big-screen movie.
Even though you may have first thought that the concept of a Paddington movie seemed like something that should have belonged in the world of animated cartoon films, a big-screen adaptation of the favored storybook has been made with real-life actors and actresses.
As a matter of fact, it seems as if the only character featured in Paddington that is not real is the lovable and adorable bear himself.
Paddington Bear was originally written as a storybook character that made his first appearance in October of 1958. The live-action adaptation of Paddington Bear and his adventures has actually been in the works since September of 2007.
Over the years, Paddington Bear has become an international sensation that was even praised and honored by Google back in October of 2008. In celebration of Paddington’s 50th anniverary, an image of the world travelling bear was worked into the actual Google logo on October 13, 2008.
Now, thanks to the production of David Heyman, the direction of Paul King and a host of great actors and actresses, Paddington Bear will be making his big-screen film debut in the United States in January of 2015.
