Paddington Producer David Heyman on Nostalgia for the Beloved Bear

 

It’s completely normal to get sentimental over the past — especially when it involves cherished childhood stories of iconic (and fuzzy) characters. Just ask David Heyman, the producer of the Harry Potter series and the new Paddington movie, hitting theaters January 16. The adorable live-action film follows Paddington — rendered in stunning CGI — from his home in the Peruvian jungle to countless misadventures in London with his adoptive family, the Browns, who offer him shelter from a sinister taxidermist. Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, and Sally Hawkins headline the all-star cast, with Ben Wishaw providing Paddington’s charming voice.

Check out the video above and share in Heyman’s long-standing nostalgia for the beloved bear, then join the celebration of Paddington’s big-screen debut with our sale of props from the film, classic stuffed toys, and more — available exclusively on Gilt.
