Paddington is heading back to the big screen, with filming on his third film set to begin next year.
The new film will be directed by Dougal Wilson, who is taking over from Paul King. He will stay on as producer.
“As a huge fan of the first two films, I am very excited (if not a little intimidated) to be continuing the story of Paddington,” said Wilson.
“It’s a massive responsibility, but all my efforts will be focussed on making a third film that honours the love so many people have for this very special bear.”
