In the opening title sequence, Paddington writes the film's title on the steamed-up window of his bedroom in the attic of the Browns' house. See more »
The US release, by Warner Bros. Pictures, made slight changes at the beginning and ending: . The opening animated WBP logo is shown before the StudioCanal & Heyday Films logos. . "StudioCanal presents" has been retyped as "Warner Bros. Pictures and StudioCanal Presents" . The credit for Anton Capital Entertainment, S.A. Is added in-between the presenters & producer credits, making the opening title cue a little more approach. . At the ending of the closing credits, the MPAA logo (with approved #) is added next to the Dolby Atmos logo. . The closing still WBP logo is added after the StudioCanal still, inverted logo.

As someone who thoroughly enjoyed the first 'Paddington' movie, this sequel was a must see for me. Not only does it not disappoint, as so many hyped movie sequels do, it exceeds all expectations and is arguably the better of the two films. 'Paddington 2' is another visual feast - the warm, vibrant animation is just phenomenal and a delight to watch, and the London setting is once again captured perfectly.
In terms of the plot, I actually think 'Paddington 2' is even more enjoyable than its predecessor. It's full of ideas and creativity and contains so many laughs and memorable individual scenes. The cast is also brilliant, with the two Hughs (Grant & Bonneville) delivering particularly entertaining performances in their roles. And of course, Paddington is as charming as ever. This is another perfect family film and a sequel that, for once, lives up to all expectations.
