The lovably innocent young bear created by author Michael Bond (and voiced by Ben Whishaw) returned for a sequel that retained all the charm of the 2014 original. In this delightful caper, Paddington is sent to prison after being framed for the theft of a rare book by the ham actor Phoenix Buchanan—played by Hugh Grant, having the time of his life as a disguise-wearing, Sondheim-singing villain. 

DIRECTOR: Paul King. WRITTEN BY: Paul King, Simon Farnaby. CAST: Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Brendan Gleeson, Ben Whishaw. 2017. 103 min. UK. Color. Scope. English. DCP.
