Continues the story of Paddington bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw), who now happily lives with his adopted English family, the Browns — father Henry (Hugh Bonneville), mother Mary (Sally Hawkins), and teens Judy (Madeleine Harris) and Jonathan (Samuel Joslin), as well as their beloved relative/housekeeper, Mrs. Bird (Julie Walters) — in a London neighborhood that’s grown incredibly fond of him. Paddington wants to buy a special gift for his Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday. He finds a beautiful, expensive pop-up book about London at his friend Mr. Gruber’s (Jim Broadbent) antique shop. To earn the money for the present, Paddington does odd jobs. Then, right before he’s finally able to buy it, a mysterious thief steals it — and Paddington ends up wrongfully accused. Paddington is sentenced to prison for the robbery based on the testimony of the Browns’ actor neighbor, Phoenix Buchanan (Hugh Grant). The young bear is frightened at first but manages to make new friends behind bars.
