Bear-ily We Roll Along: A Paddington Musical Is Happening

For those Paddington and marmalade sandwhich eating fans out there, get ready because Paddington The Musical is happening and is set to launch in 2025.

As Variety magazine in the United States reports, Paddington: The Musical as its working title is set to debut in the UK sometime in 2025 and then will no doubt release to the rest of the world after that.

Tom Fletcher, a founding member of the pop rock band McFly, will write the music and lyrics. It’s not Fletcher’s first time in the kid-friendly musical space: He also wrote and recorded a full soundtrack for a musical version of his children’s book The Christmasaurus. The director for Paddington: The Musical will be Luke Sheppard, whose most recent directing credit is for the jukebox musical & Juliet, currently on Broadway (and which also originated in the UK).

“The magic of Paddington is that, through his wide-eyed innocence, he sees the very best in humanity, reminding us that love and kindness can triumph if we open our hearts and minds to one another,” producers Sonia Friedman and Eliza Lumley said in a statement. “We cannot wait to bring Paddington, his antics, adventures and mishaps with the Brown family, and Michael Bond’s other treasured characters to the stage. We hope to inspire audiences of all ages with fun, beauty, joy, and all that Paddington stands for.”
