Everyone’s favorite marmalade-loving little bear has made a splash onto home screens! Anchor Bay Entertainment and TWC-Dimension recently released the critically acclaimed, heart-warming family film PADDINGTON on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand back on April 28, 2015.
PADDINGTON BEAR was first introduced to children in Michael Bond’s 1958 book, A Bear Called Paddington and the subsequent Paddington Bear series has sold over 35 million copies and been translated into 40 languages. For the first time, author Michael Bond has given his blessing for his beloved characters to be brought to the big screen, charming both critics and audience members alike.
He’s Come a Long Way And He’s Here to Stay!
PADDINGTON tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear who travels to London in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had thought it would be until he meets the kindly Brown family (Bonneville and Hawkins) who take him home after reading the sign around his neck. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rare talking bear catches the eye of Millicent (Nicole Kidman), a museum taxidermist.
Rated PG for mild action and rude humor. Runtime is 95 minutes. The Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD bonus content includes Meet the Characters, When a Bear Comes to Stay, From Page to Screen and “Shine” Lyric Music Video written by Gwen Stefani & Pharrell. The Blu-ray will also include the exclusive special feature called The Making of “Shine” with Gwen Stefani & Pharrell.
My kids have thoroughly enjoyed PADDINGTON. I had taken my two little ones to see it when it was in the theaters. I know you and your family will truly enjoy this positively delightful movie.
