A new series of Paddington books, based on a new Nickelodeon TV series about everyone’s favourite marmalade-eating bear, will launch in 2020.
The new animated TV series, called The Adventures of Paddington, is made up of 26 episodes and features the voice of Ben Whishaw as Paddington, as he does in the films. It also has a new theme song, written and performed by Take That’s Gary Barlow.
The list of tie-ins will launch with a picture book,The Wrong List, and My First Sticker Book in April 2020. The Wrong Listis described as “full of warmth and slapstick humour”, telling a story of Paddington, who has mistakenly picked up the wrong list of chores to do.
More books based on the TV series will follow later in the year.
