Watch Paddington’s Arrival in Lima (VIDEO)


The most popular Peruvian bear visited Lima.

Less than one month away from the premiere of Paddington 2 (due to the success of the first film, released 2 years ago). As previously reported, Paddington arrived in Lima this week, looking to promote the film and he was welcomed by hundreds of Peruvian kids at Jorge Chavez international airport.

It is worth mentioning that the first film, Paddington, has broken records at international box offices and has positioned itself as one of the most successful family films in recent years.

In this second adventure, he will look to complete a series of different jobs in order to be able to buy a gift for his aunt Lucy who is turning 100 years old. Unfortunately everything gets a little difficult and he ends up having to stop a thief with the help of his adoptive family.

It is important to mention that Paddington has become a true icon from Peru. We can recall that tourists look to meet the real Paddington bear when they visit Macchu Picchu. Thanks to the writer’s idea to make the main character of his stories for kids a Peruvian bear, it can be used positively to promote tourism in Peru.
