WATCH: International Trailer for ‘Paddington 2’

Sequel to 2014 hit has the popular bear character on the trail of a mystery.

StudioCanal U.K. has released an international trailer for Paddington 2, the sequel to the hit 2014 animation-live action hybrid feature based on Michael Bond’s popular children’s books.

Paddington 2 finds the star bear 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 hundredth 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.

A Heyday Films and StudioCanal production, Paddington’s return to the big screen is helmed by BAFTA nominated director Paul King (Paddington, Come Fly with Me, The Mighty Boosh) written by Paul King and Simon Farnaby (Paddington, Yonderland and the forthcoming Mindhorn).

Paddington 2 is produced by multi award-winning David Heyman (producer of all eight of the Harry Potter films, Gravity, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them).

Paddington 2 is due in theaters Nov. 10.
