pad1Announced years ago, but never really going anywhere for a long time, Paddington will be arriving in theaters on December 12th, 2014, Collider is reporting. The mix of live-action and animation will feature the beloved children’s book character Paddington–a bear who wears a fancy coat and loves marmalade–being “adopted” by Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth. Not much is known about the plot at this point, although its said to involve Paddington on the run from a “museum taxidermist.” Also starring Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent and Sally Hawkins, the movie is currently set to open just days before the final installment of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy.
