‘Paddington’ Movie Bears Down on 2014 Christmas Release in U.S.

Firth voicing bear in CGi-live action project

TWC-Dimension will release “Paddington” during next year’s Christmas season with a Dec. 12, 2014 launch in the U.S.

The film, produced by “Gravity” and “Harry Potter” producer David Heyman, stars Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Julie Walters. Colin Firth is the voice of Paddington.

“The holiday season is the perfect time to bring the humorous adventures of one of the world’s most loveable bears to family audiences everywhere,” said distribution president Erik Lomis.

“Paddington” follows the comic misadventures of a talking, accident-prone young bear from Darkest Peru who’s found at Paddington Station and adopted by a London family. StudioCanal financed and is distributing in the U.K., France and Germany, and handling world sales.

The CGI-live action film is inspired from the book series first published in 1958. Paddington books have sold more than 35 million copies in 40 languages.

TWC-Dimension also announced it has brought on former Dreamworks Animation marketing chief Anne Globe to consult on marketing “Paddington.” Globe worked on launching the “Shrek,” “Madagascar” and “Kung Fu Panda” franchises.
