The Weinstein Company has released a new Paddington image from director Paul King’s (The Mighty Boosh) upcoming film about the lovable bear. The story centers on said bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw) who is lost at Paddington Station in London, adopted by a kind family, and then sets out in search of an explorer who inspired his aunt years before. The first trailer revealed the tomfoolery that ensues, and while the pic had a bit of a creative shakeup when Colin Firth opted to step down from main voicing duties, I still remain hopeful that Paddington will be an adorable family friendly adventure comedy. Today’s new image reveals Nicole Kidman’s character, who happens to be the antagonist of the pic—a sinister, seductive taxidermist.
Hit the jump to take a look at the new Paddington image. The live-action cast also includes Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, and Peter Capaldi. Paddington opens in theaters on December 25th.
