“Paddington” Becomes A Nickelodeon Series

Paddington Becomes A Nickelodeon Series

Studiocanal, Nickelodeon and producer David Heyman are teaming to create a CG-animated series adaptation of the “Paddington” franchise.

Actor Ben Whishaw is on board to reprise his role as the voice of the beloved bear in the series which, unlike the family-targeted films, will be aimed at pre-schoolers. Like the films, the series will be based on Michael Bond’s Paddington Bear stories.

The series will air on Nickelodeon’s networks worldwide next year with local broadcast partners to be brought on board in France, Canada, China and Japan.
