Emma Watson’s “Paddington” Statue Has Been Unveiled!
We announced a little while ago that a Paddington trail, with Paddington statues decorated by various well-known names, would be placed around London in honor of the upcoming film. The trail was unveiled today, and among the statues are the bears that Potter stars Emma Watson, Julie Walters (Mrs. Weasley), and Stephen Fry (UK audiobooks) have designed. We can finally see all of the designs in all their glory as well as find out where exactly they are all located.
Check out Emma, Walters’s, and Fry’s designs below:
Some of the other designers include Hugh Bonneville, Peter Capaldi, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Nicole Kidman – and many more!
The statues will be scattered about London in various locations. You can find out more about the trail itself here, including details of how you can get involved, what will happen to the statues after the trail, and pictures of all the bears. The trail is due to run from November 4 through December 30.
Paddington, produced by Potter producer David Heyman and featuring Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent (Professor Horace Slughorn), is due to be released at the end of this month. A new trailer was released last week, which you can watch here.
If you’re going to be in London in the next couple of months, make sure you check the statues out! You can read the full press release below.
