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.
Paddington is happily settled with the Brown family in Windsor Gardens, where he has become a popular member of the community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes. While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy's 100th birthday, Paddington spots a unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber's antique shop, and embarks upon a series of odd jobs to buy it. But when the book is stolen, it's up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief.Written by
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.

When Paddington calls the Browns from the payphone after escaping prison, he only dials six digits. London phone numbers have eight. See more »
[brandishes a sword]
Stage combat. Level Four.
[grabs a nearby rifle]
Well, where I come from, *laddie*... they teach you never to bring a knife to a gunfight!
[cocks the rifle]
I think you'll find that fires plastic darts.
[fires a dart into the middle of his forehead]
So it does.
[pulls off the dart]
Whereas this sword - looks very sharp!

Even better than the first!
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!
