MANILA - The first trailer of "Paddington" featuring Xian Lim's voice as the titular bear who finds a home in England has been released. 

The two-minute trailer of the English film by Paul King was posted by local distributor Captive Cinema on its Facebook page, along with a behind-the-scenes reel of Lim recording the voice of Paddington. 

Lim is lending his voice for the Philippine release of the movie, which originally features Ben Whishaw as the talking bear from Peru.

The film will be released in the Philippine theaters in February.
