Studiocanal announced it on the sidelines of the Cannes film festival.
Certainly, Paddington 2 no longer has 100% positive reviews to its credit. But the rest of the saga is still eagerly awaited. And good news! Studiocanal reveals (via Deadline) on the sidelines of the Cannes Film Festival (which opens today) that the filming of Paddington 3 will begin in the second quarter of 2022.
The creators behind the first two Paddington, Paul King, Simon Farnaby and Mark Burton, will be back at the helm, with a screenplay by Mark Burton, Jon Foster and James Lamont. According to Deadline, Paddington 3 will be one of Studiocanal’s flagship films for years to come, knowing that the group plans to invest $ 1 billion in new content by 2024.
Studiocanal – which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year – will bank on the franchise as a third season of the television series The Adventures Of Paddington, made with Heyday, was also announced.
