It was released in the United Kingdom on 28 November 2014 and received mostly positive reviews from film critics.

In the deep jungles of darkest Peru , a geographer named Montgomery Clyde locates a family of semi-intelligent bears, who he realises can learn English and have a deep appetite for marmalade . He names them Lucy and Pastuzo. As he departs, he throws his hat to Pastuzo, and tells them they are always welcome should they wish to go to Britain . Years later, the bears are living in harmony with their nephew. One day, an earthquake strikes their home, forcing them to seek shelter underground. Pastuzo is unable to reach the shelter after being distracted from his home being destroyed and disappears. When the earthquake passes, the nephew finds his hat. Aunt Lucy encourages her nephew to go and find solace in London while she moves into a retirement home for old bears, and stows him away on a cargo ship.

The young bear reaches London but fails to find a home, until he is taken in briefly by the Brown family, who name him Paddington. Henry Brown is adamant that Paddington stay only one night while they find a place for him to live permanently. Paddington causes a series of accidents across the house which lead the family to further ostracise him. Paddington believes he can find a home with the explorer who found his aunt and uncle, but does not know the explorer's name. Paddington and the Browns ultimately discover through an antique shop owner that the hat bears the stamp of the Geographers Guild, a clue which may help them locate the explorer. However the official position of the Geographers Guild is that it never sent a member to explore darkest Peru.

Meanwhile, a sadistic museum taxidermist Millicent captures and stuffs exotic animals to house in the Natural History Museum . When she becomes aware of Paddington, she immediately tries to hunt him down.

With the help of Mr. Brown, Paddington infiltrates the Geographers Guild archives and discovers an expedition to Peru was undertaken by Montgomery Clyde. He uses the phone books to track the addresses of all the "M Clyde"s in London. When the family departs for the day, leaving Paddington home alone, Millicent, scheming with the Browns' neighbour Mr. Curry, sneaks in and tries to capture Paddington; he inadvertently repels her, but also sets part of the house on fire. The Browns disbelieve his story of Millicent's attempt to capture him and assume that he must move into a new home as soon as possible.

Paddington, feeling unwanted at the Browns, leaves and tries to locate Montgomery Clyde himself. When he finally locates the house, he finds out Clyde died many years ago, and that Millicent is actually his daughter – who was bitter towards her father for losing his job and membership with the museum because he had a change of heart and refused to bring a valuable Peruvian bear specimen home that would have made him the wealthiest man in the world. She is determined to succeed where her father failed and be rich and famous herself. Millicent manages to tranquillise Paddington and prepare him for stuffing, but Mr. Curry betrays her when discovering her true intentions and informs the Brown family of the events. They immediately rush to save Paddington, who is detained in the museum. They manage to rescue him, and Paddington subdues Millicent by throwing a marmalade sandwich at her, which attracts a huge flock of pigeons.

In the end, the Browns adopt Paddington into their family and Millicent is sentenced to community service at a petting zoo . Paddington writes to Aunt Lucy saying he is happy and has found a home at last.
