The teaser trailer for the upcoming Paddington Bear movie has been released, with a tiny glimpse of Paddington.

Colin Firth will voice Paddington and Nicole Kidman plays an evil taxidermist named Millicent. The film will also star Downton Abbey‘s Hugh Bonneville and Blue Jasmine star Sally Hawkins as Mr. and Mrs. Brown, Jim Broadbent as Mr.Gruber and Julie Walters as Mrs. Bird – who both starred in the Harry Potter films among their other many accolades – and our Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi will play Mr. Curry. It’s a nerd-fest. I think I might be more excited about this than The Hobbit.

Paddington is due for release in the UK on November 28th, so we should get a Christmas holiday release in Australia. Watch the trailer below.
