Trivia

The animation in the book sequence when Paddington and Aunt Lucy travel around London is very similar to that of Paddington Bear (1976), in which all characters and backgrounds other than Paddington were paper cut-outs. In a fun bit of retro-fitting, that (FilmFair London) series could now be viewed as how Aunt Lucy imagined Paddington's adventures in London, with narrator Michael Horden re-counting the tales.

Goofs

When Paddington calls the Browns from the payphone after escaping prison, he only dials six digits. London phone numbers have eight. See more »

Phoenix Buchanan: I think you'll find that fires plastic darts.
Mrs. Bird: [fires a dart into the middle of his forehead] So it does.
Phoenix Buchanan: [pulls off the dart] Whereas this sword - looks very sharp!

Even better than the first!
7 April 2018 | by thechriscloudSee all my reviews

Spoiler Free Even better than the first! One minute I'm cracking up, one minute I'm tearing up and the whole time my jaw is on the ground from the visual effects. Great for the whole family. The music is so beautiful and creative. The writing and scene composition is so amazing and thought out. Just like the first, you just love Paddington and every character surrounding him. I hope they make a third!
