“Paddington is such a beloved character for all of us at Studiocanal,” said Didier Lupfer, ceo. “We are incredibly happy to be back in his world introducing new generations to his kindness, generosity and spirit. We are inspired by the talented animation team at Blue Zoo partnering once again with our friends at Heyday.”
