Marks & Spencer Changes a Heart with Help from Paddington Bear in Holiday 2017 Film


Sharing the likeness of The Grinch and Cindy Lou Who in the “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” Marks & Spencer introduces a new Christmas duo with Paddington Bear, and his new friend in their holiday film “The Christmas Visitor.”

The film follows Paddington as he becomes an accidental hero. He unknowingly interrupts a burglar, as he is about to come into his house, and mistakes him for Santa. In his familiar red bush hat and blue duffel coat, Paddington guides this once burglar around town, ultimately returning what he had stolen, and changes his heart while showing him the joy of giving.

Marks & Spencer have not disappointed as they channel all of the family fun revolving around the holidays. This year is no exception, as they continue to thrive and get people in the spirit for this holiday season.
