'Paddington' Teaser Trailer Released

"Please look after this bear." Oh, we most definitely will!

The first teaser trailer for "Paddington" has been released, and if you have any love and appreciation for English children's literature and marmalade sandwiches, you're appropriately excited.

Produced by David Heyman (yes, the genius who produced the "Harry Potter" films and "Gravity"), "Paddington" follows our favorite traveling bear as he leaves his native Peru to begin a new life in London.

The famous bear will be voiced by Colin Firth, who will star alongside Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville and Sally Hawkins. Framestore, the British visual effects company that received considerable acclaim for its work on "Gravity," will also have a hand in bringing the story to life.

"Paddington" is set to release in U.S. theaters on Dec. 12, 2014.
