Seriously, a Paddington Bear movie is being made? I thought that the lowest point was reached with Battleship but Paddinton Bear? I really hope that the film-makers don't try to modernise Paddington Bear in any way, shape or form which would destroy the spirit of Paddington Bear. The best thing for the film-makers to do is look at last years Winnie the Pooh and see how successful that was at introducing the character to a modern audience but without modernising the characters.
Interesting side note: I wonder how this film will go down in America. I mean, technically, Paddington is an illegal immigrant from South America and we all know how touchy the Americans are about this subject. I could genuinely see members of the Tea Party protesting this film for making the evil illegal immigrants look good in the eyes of children. I mean, look at how Fox News reacted to Tex Richman in The Muppets, there will be so much anger and rage from those people over this film.
