Paddington Bear Next Childhood Memory to be Ruined

September 14, 2007

Warner Bros. and Harry Potter producer David Heyman have announced plans to bring children's book star Paddington Bear to screens. Variety says the production will likely blend live-action with a CGI Paddington in the same style as such cinematic classics as Garfield, Stuart Little, and Garfield 2: A Tail of Two Kitties, which should lend the character a nightmarishly disturbing, not-quite-real quality.

In the books, Paddington Bear was found at Paddington Station wearing a duffle coat, hat and Wellington boots, carrying a suitcase containing an empty jar of marmalade and wearing a label around his neck that reads "Please look after this bear, thank you." It's unclear how the tale will translate to modern times, where such a sight would clearly be seen as a bomb threat and destroyed by a police squad.
