Book-to-Film: Paddington by Michael Bond

The beloved picture book is on its way to the big screen.

Film plot synopsis from IMDB:

A young Peruvian bear with a passion for all things British travels to London in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone at Paddington Station, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined - until he meets the kindly Brown family, who read the label around his neck ('Please look after this bear. Thank you.') and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist...

The film is scheduled to be released this coming Christmas. (That is, if you still want to see it after that creepy taxidermist line in the summary.  The bear on the film's poster even sort of looks taxidermified.  Gross.)
