The third movie of the film franchise will hit the UK more than two months ahead of the US, when the motion picture will be in theatres from January 17th.

StudioCanal confirmed the exciting news on X, posting: "How marvellous!

“We can finally reveal that @PaddingtonBear's latest feature film, Paddington in Peru, will be coming to the big screen on November 8th 2024. #PaddingtonInPeru (sic)"

The post was accompanied by a 14-second clip of Paddington wiping marmalade off the screen to reveal the UK release date of the movie.

It read: "In cinemas November 8 2024".

Ben Whishaw, 42, will reprise his role as the titular bear's voice, and Hugh Bonneville, Julie Walters, Madeleine Harris and Samuel Joslin will also reprise their roles in the third movie.

But Sally Hawkins won't be back as Mrs Brown, with Emily Mortimer taking her place.

Rachel Zegler was due to be a new member of the cast in the part of Gina Cabot, but she left filming in London to join the strike that recently brought Hollywood to a standstill, partly over fears AI will be used by studios instead of humans.

She joined fellow actors on a New York SAG-AFTRA picket line.

Zegler has since been replaced in the movie by newcomer Carla Tous.

Olivia Colman and Antonio Banderas are also joining 'Paddington in Peru'.

The film will be directed by Dougal Wilson in his feature directorial debut. The movie will once again be produced by Studiocanal with Heyday Films following their work on the first two instalments of the 'Paddington' franchise.

Studiocanal's Anna Marsh and Ron Halpern said: "We have long been huge admirers of Dougal's work, his stunning visual creativity, his storytelling, heart, emotion and humour.

"We are so thrilled that Dougal will be directing the third 'Paddington' film. We look forward to bringing 'Paddington' back to Peru for his next big screen adventure."

The new film will be shot on location in London and Peru.
