StudioCanal Removes a Stop Motion Tagline from the "Paddington" Remake

Paddington Bear, the fictional charter, based on the children's book series by Michael Bond stars in the upcoming StudioCanal film Paddington.

We all remember the lovable Stop Motion bear from the 1975 television series.  Well, at one time Stop Motion, now CGI.  StudioCanal, after releasing their official teaser trailer earlier today made it clear to us that this will be a live action children's film with slick, snazzy, computer generated bear.  Do I hold anything against them for doing this?

Honestly, a little.  But lets hope that this isn't another Alvin and The Chipmunks flick that you put on to distract you 2-year-old!

The film currently is marked with a December 12, 2014 release date attached to it.  Though, if we put our 'glass half full' spectacles on the StudioCanal Aardman team-up for the Shaun the Sheep movie does hit theaters in March of 2015.  Is this a sign of more Stop Motion?  Only time will tell.

PADDINGTON follows the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear with a passion for all things British, who travels to London in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone at Paddington Station, he begins to realise 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...
