Singer-songwriter Gary Barlow will write and perform the theme song for brand-new pre-school series The Adventures of Paddington.

The former Take That frontman will lend his famous pipes to the new song, titled Paddington Bear, which will play during each episode of the all-new CG-animated series, coming to screens next year on Nick Jr.

Airing in March 2020, The Adventures of Paddington centers on a younger Paddington as he writes letters to Aunt Lucy celebrating the new things he has discovered through the day’s exciting activities.

Following the series premiere of The Adventures of Paddington, NickJr.co.uk and the Nick Jr. App will feature special Paddington short-form content, activities and games, with the full-length episode premiering on these services a week before TV.

Actor Ben Whishaw (Paddington 1 and 2) reprise his role as the voice of the title character in the 52 X 11’ series. He’ll be joined by new cast members include: Morwenna Banks, Bobby Beynon, Sheena Bhattessa, Darren Boyd, Noel Clarke, Phyllis Logan, Monica Lopera, Sabrina Newton-Fisher, David Schofield, Reece Shearsmith, Liz Sutherland-Lim and Jeremiah Waysome.

The Adventures of Paddington is directed by Adam Shaw and Chris Drew of Blue Zoo (Go Jetters, Digby Dragon, Miffy, Q Pootle 5), and developed for television and written by Jon Foster and James Lamont (The Amazing World of Gumball, Cuckoo, Paddington 1 & 2). The series is a Heyday Films and StudioCanal production, in association with Copyrights.
