Paddington’s adventures have been adapted several times for television and at the end of 2014 Paddington made his debut onto the big screen, a further film Paddington 2 followed in 2017 with a third in the works. The movies were produced by STUDIOCANAL, part of the international content and media group Vivendi. A new Paddington TV series also from STUDIOCANAL is set to launch on Nickelodeon in 2020.
