PADDINGTON 2’s all-star cast is led by Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Madeleine Harris and Samuel Joslin, with Ben Whishaw as the voice of Paddington, Imelda Staunton as the voice of Aunt Lucy and Michael Gambon as the voice of Uncle Pastuzo.

Brendan Gleeson appears as “Knuckles” McGinty, a notorious safecracker and legendary strong man. Initially resistant to Paddington’s charms, he eventually becomes an unexpected new ally in the young bear’s quest to catch a thief.
