Paddington Bear has a voice once more.
Ben Whishaw is set to voice the young bear in the live-action film titled “Paddington”, reports The Daily Mail.
Whishaw is replacing Colin Firth who exited the project last month, attributing his departure to not being able to find the right voice for the character.
“Paddington” centres on the young bear from Peru who is found at Paddington station by a London Family who take him in.
Paul King is directing the project which also stars Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi and Julie Walters.
The film is booked in for a Christmas release.
