The third Paddington film, titled Paddington In Peru, has completed filming and is coming to cinemas on 8th November, 2024.

We all agree that the two Paddington films are perfect, right? Paul King’s films captured the heart of the character and managed to satisfy audiences young and old alike. Also, the second film features one of the best Hugh Grant performances ever. A third film was announced officially in February 2021.

We can now happily report that Paddington in Peru has completed filming and StudioCanal and Heyday Films are bringing the film to UK cinemas on 8th November, 2024. That’s still over a year away, but hey, at least there’s a nice snap from a location, presumably in Peru, to go with the release date announcement.

Sony Pictures are looking after the film in the US for our readers across the pond. American and Canadian audiences can expect the film on 17th January, 2025.

Dougal Wilson is taking over directing duties from King, who has been plenty busy making Wonka. King does still have a story credit on the new film, mind you.

“It’s been a joy and an honour to shoot Paddington in Peru with such a wonderful and talented cast and crew,” Wilson said in a statement. “I feel incredibly lucky to have been blessed with such a lovely group of people, many of whom have returned to the world of this beloved bear. We are also delighted to have welcomed Emily, Olivia, Antonio and Carla to the Paddington family.”

In the third film, Paddington will return to Peru to visit his Aunt Lucy with the Brown family firmly in tow. Of course, the Browns and the titular, blue-coated bear are off on a wild adventure, this time in a jungle instead of the streets of London.

Paddington in Peru stars Hugh Bonneville, Emily Mortimer, Antonio Banderas, Olivia Colman, Julie Walters, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin and Jim Broadbent, while Ben Whishaw and Imelda Staunton return as the voices of Paddington and Aunt Lucy. Now that’s what we like to call a star-studded cast, even if Sally Hawkins opted not to return.
