First ever Paddington World comes to Dubai Festival City Mall
The family-favourite literary bear, Paddington, is bringing joy to the screens once again in a highly-anticipated sequel, PADDINGTON 2! The second instalment of the animated comedy will be released across movie theatres in the UAE on November 30th– just in time for the holiday season!
Based on the nostalgic children’s books of the late Michael Bond, the follow-up to the evergreen original will see Paddington continue to spread joy and marmalade on his not-so lucky adventures with the Brown family. Audiences are sure to be charmed, amused and entertained as they watch the endearing bear search to find the perfect present for his Aunt Lucy’s one-hundredth birthday.
Written and directed by Paul King and showcasing an all-star British cast including Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Ben Whishaw, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins and Julie Walters, PADDINGTON 2 has already received rave reviews from critics worldwide citing it as “one of the best movies of the year” [Radio Times].
To celebrate the film’s release, the first-ever Paddington World opens at Dubai Festival City Mall on Sunday 26th November, with activities, carnival games and a chance to meet Paddington himself from 4pm-10pm every day. Every person who enters Paddington World will be put into the draw to win a once-in-a-lifetime family trip to London sponsored by British Airways, Jumeirah Hotels London and Belmond British Pullman Trains.
PADDINGTON 2 continues from the worldwide hit PADDINGTON (2015), following the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear with a passion for all things British, who travels to London in search of a home.
PADDINGTON 2 Logline: Paddington, now happily settled with the Brown family and a popular member of the local community, picks up a series of odd jobs to buy the perfect present for his Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday, only for the gift to be stolen.
