Duration: 2 hours and 9 minutes

What to expect

A fantastically funny story about the classic bear from Darkest Peru – now a major movie star!

Hurrying forward, he held out a welcoming hand. “Sir Percival Rushmoor,” he said. “I’m invigilating.”
“I’m sorry to hear that, Sir Percival,” said Paddington. “I hope you feel better very soon.”

Paddington always finds himself in unusual situations so it is no surprise when he has a run-in with the police, appears in a TV cookery show, and gives one of his hard stares to a hypnotist!
