A leading distributor of quality feature films, Captive Cinema Distribution Incorporated announced that Kapamilya star Xian Lim was tapped to provide the voice of Michael Bond’s children book creature named ‘Paddington’ who has a film version opening on February 11.
Lim is the film’s Philippine release voice for the young Peruvian cub who traveled to the city (in London) looking for a home as he got lost and felt alone until he was accommodated by the Browns for a temporary shelter. Ben Wishaw is the original voice for the endearing bear.
Lim says, “I am a teddy bear, too.” He refers to himself as people regard him as huggable and he was on the lofty side when he was growing up.
‘Paddington’ is based from the 1959 book ‘A Bear Called Paddington’. It was published by William Collins & Sons (now Harper Collins). After its initial success, Bond was able to do a series of Paddington books since 1965.
Xian Lim shares billing with Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, and Nicole Kidman.
The film is produced by David Heyman and directed by Paul King. Its screenplay is written by King and Hamish McColl.
