“Paddington” movie quotes bring the beloved children’s book character to life in a feature film. The family movie was directed by Paul King using a screenplay he and Hamish McColl adapted from the character created by Michael Bond. “Paddington” opened in theaters in the United Kingdom on November 29, 2014, then in the United States on January 16, 2015.

In “Paddington,” the young talking bear title character (voiced by Ben Whishaw) meets the Brown family in a London train station. Mother Mary (Sally Hawkins) sees a bear in need and invites him into their home for the night. While Paddington bonds with daughter Judy (Madeline Harris) and son Jonathan (Samuel Joslin), father Henry (Hugh Bonneville) is not keen on allowing a marmalade-loving live bear, talking or not, to stay in their home.

Paddington also attracts the eye of taxidermy enthusiast Millicent (Nicole Kidman) who thinks a cute little talking bear would make an excellent addition to her collection. Millicent, who later learns that she and Paddington have met before, tries to capture Paddington to stuff him, leaving Paddington with few options to remain safe. If only the Brown family, realizing how much they love him, would show up and rescue him before it’s too late.

“Paddington” brings some family fun into theaters already packed with other films such as ”Into the Woods,” ”The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” ”Annie,” ”Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb."
