The Paddington Bear movie franchise, based on the Michael Bond character, is one of the funniest, most endearing, and most lovable franchises to have appeared in recent years.
Paddington 3 is set to begin production later in 2022, and an exciting update has revealed new details about what’s going on behind the scenes of the Peruvian bear’s third adventure.
As previously announced, the next instalment of Michael Bond’s marmalade-loving bear character will have a new director, as Paul King, who wrote and directed the first two films, has confirmed that he will not be returning behind the camera for this new one.
Paddington 3 Release Date
No release date has been announced, but the studio may plan for the third movie to hit theatres around the same time as the first two movies, which did well when they opened in the US in January and February. Paddington 3 will probably premiere in 2024 at the earliest, though production will start in mid-2022.
Paddington 3 Cast
Without Ben Whishaw playing the bear himself and the Brown family played by Sally Hawkins, Hugh Bonneville, Julie Walters, Madeleine Harris, and Samuel Joslin, the film Paddington wouldn’t be complete.
It would be surprising if Whishaw didn’t voice Paddington in the third film as well since he will be doing so in the animated TV series.
Although Uncle Pastuzo would have to be in flashbacks, Imelda Staunton and Michael Gambon are likely to return to voice Aunt Lucy and Uncle Pastuzo, respectively.
Returns from Sanjeev Bhaskar, Ben Miller, Jessica Hynes, and Doctor Who’s Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi would not be a surprise, and neither would the residents of Windsor Gardens.
Likewise, Mr. Gruber’s antique store will undoubtedly be mentioned, which means Jim Broadbent will reprise his charming role. Although Knuckles McGinty and the other Paddington 2 prisoners are less likely to make an appearance, Brendan Gleeson, Tom Davis, and Noah Taylor could still make an appearance in the third installment.
However, we are confident that we can anticipate hearing the incredible sounds of Tobago and d’Lime, the musical act whose lilting Caribbean sounds have so far been featured in both Paddington films.
Paddington 3 Plot
Paddington in Peru, the working title for Paddington 3, is expected to be a little less emotionally intense than its predecessor. Paddington is originally from Peru, so even though the plot and cast have not yet been revealed, we can anticipate that at some point in his life, he will have to spend some time at home. He might have to visit family members or meet with some old friends to conduct business.
It will undoubtedly be more serious and less terrifying than the sequel. Even though Paddington has only ever been a visitor to England, we sincerely hope that he won’t leave the Brown family in England just yet. In any case, we can’t wait to see the adorable Paddington Bear get back in touch with his roots!
Paddington 3 won’t start filming until 2023, and it will take place in both London and Peru. Paddington’s reacquaintance with Peruvian culture will be quite enjoyable, as will the bear’s change of scenery from his usual surroundings in rainy, foggy London, where he is preoccupied with big city customs.
Where to Watch
You can currently stream both seasons of “Paddington” on Netflix or Disney+Hotstar.
About The Previous Season
Along with some other prisoners, Paddington escapes from jail. Knuckles declares he will assist Paddington in proving his innocence but later retracts and decides to flee the country. In order to meet Buchanan at Paddington Station on a steam train carrying the treasure, Paddington finds a phone and calls the Browns. While the Browns are on the next train and attempt to catch up from behind, Paddington and Buchanan make it onto the train.
Knuckles and the prisoners arrive to save Paddington from drowning after deciding to stay and help him after all when Buchanan traps Paddington in a train carriage and switches the track so it separates and crashes in a river. Buchanan is arrested after Henry stops him just before he finds the treasure.
When Paddington recovers from his illness and learns that his family and friends have brought Aunt Lucy to London to witness the event for herself, he realizes that the court had found him innocent. Knuckles is released while Buchanan is imprisoned; there, he organizes the inmates to perform musicals in order to find his audience.
