Paddington (Ben Whishaw), now happily settled with the Brown family and a popular member of the local community, picks up a series of odd jobs to buy the perfect present for his Aunt Lucy's (Imelda Staunton's) 100th birthday, only for the gift to be stolen.
According to Ben Whishaw, production began in 2016.
Would you excuse us a moment?
Henry Brown: What are you doing?
Mary Brown: Talking to the nice men.
Henry Brown: Nice men? Mary, we can't trust these people. I mean look at them! Talk about a rogues' gallery. Hideous! And as for that bearded baboon in the middle, he's hardly got two brain ...
The railway chase suffers from multiple errors: engine drivers have no control over where their train will go, even the most skilled of amateur drivers can't suddenly turn a family member into a burly stoker for a big hungry firebox, freight trains never commence their journey at platforms of London passenger termini, uncoupled vehicles will automatically brake to a halt, the couplings are American style instead of British, parallel tracks also have trains coming in the other direction, and buffers are very heavily built when a track ends next to a long drop into flowing water.
In the first part of the end credits, there is a scrapbook which features the achievements of Aunt Lucy and the other main characters shortly after the events in the film.
Sanjeev Bhaskar says that three different endings were written. They shot two of them, and then these were combined for the released version of the film.
