According to the outlet, award-winning commercials director Dougal Wilson has been tapped to helm the new movie, which has been titled Paddington in Peru.

This marks Dougal‘s theatrical feature debut. He’ll be taking over from Paul King, who directed the first two Paddington films and is currently at work on the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory prequel, Wonka, which stars Timothee Chalamet.

“After ten years of working on the Paddington movies, I feel absurdly protective of the little bear, and I’m delighted that Dougal will be there to hold his paw as he embarks on his third big-screen adventure,” Paul said in a statement. “Dougal’s work is never less than astounding: funny, beautiful, heartfelt, imaginative, and totally original. Aunt Lucy once asked us to ‘Please Look After This Bear.’ I know Dougal will do so admirably.”

Filming for Paddington in Peru will begin in 2023 and will film on location in both London and Peru.
