He's Almost Here! New 'Paddington' Trailer Teases Arrival Of The Marmalade-Loving Bear [Trailer + Pictures]

A teaser trailer has been released to promote this year's upcoming Paddington movie, based on Michael Bond's much-loved children's books and the animated television shows. The King's Speech's Colin Firth will voice the little brown bear, who everybody knows has a penchant for marmalade sandwiches.

Upcoming Children's Film 'Paddington' Will Add A Modern Twist To Michael Bond's Much-Loved Children's Classic.

Released this coming November, the Paul King-directed movie will follow the classic tale of the conscientious little bear who arrives in London from Peru feeling frightened and alone at Paddington Station. Luckily, the kind Brown family notice Paddington with his "Please look after this bear" tag and take him in.

Watch The 'Paddington' Teaser Trailer:

Paddington begins to get accustomed to his London life and vows to track down the English explorer his Aunt Lucy back in Peru had told him so much about. However, on his adventures, Paddington has a terrifying run-in with a mean, money-loving taxidermist with an eye for rare bears, who has Paddington running for his life.

The trailer doesn't show much of the film apart from Paddington arriving at the station in a bag and we don't get to hear our furry protagonist talking either. Speaking about his latest role, Firth said he was planning to play his character with "a slight Peruvian flavour" and that he also acted the digitally-created bear's movements with a motion sensor outfit.

Nicole Kidman spoke of her excitement when her agent told her about the Paddington movie and her role within it. "I was read the stories when I was little and I grew up with Paddington. I know all about his adventures and what mischief he got up to," she said. Kidman and Firth will star alongside Blue Jasmine's Sally Hawkins and Downton Abbey's Hugh Bonneville in an exciting modern take on the children's classic.

Paddington will be released on the 28th November this year.
