Next Paddington movie begins filming next year.

Following his televised tea date with Queen Elizabeth II recently, Paddington Bear is set to return to the big screen with the third instalment in his hit film franchise announced today.

'Paddington In Peru' will be directed by Dougal Wilson, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, principal photography will begin next year, with the film to be shot on location in London and Peru.

Paul King (director of the first two films in the Paddington franchise) said of the news: "After ten years of working on the Paddington movies, I feel absurdly protective of the little bear, and I’m delighted that Dougal will be there to hold his paw as he embarks on his third big screen adventure. Dougal’s work is never less than astounding: funny, beautiful, heartfelt, imaginative, and totally original. Aunt Lucy once asked us to ‘Please Look After This Bear.’ I know Dougal will do so admirably."

And Paddington producer David Heyman added: "After an exacting search, we’re delighted that the brilliant Dougal Wilson will be directing the third Paddington film. A much-garlanded legend within the commercials world, we have long admired Dougal’s virtuoso work, and his gift for directing with heart, humour, surprise and vivid imaginative flair. He’s a wonderfully inventive kindred spirit for Paddington’s latest adventure with the Browns, and we’re thrilled to be working with him."
