From Mr Bean to Wonder Woman
The trail also recognises a British comedy great Mr. Bean, who bumbled his way to box office success in his first big screen outing ‘Bean’ in 1997, after first appearing on our television screens 30 years ago in 1990, with the versatile comic performer Rowan Atkinson playing the hapless hero. Only 14 episodes of the original ‘live action’ TV series were made, followed by a further two feature films and three animated series. Mr. Bean is now the biggest TV brand on Facebook globally, with 89 million fans. Visitors will be able to share a bench in Leicester Square gardens with Rowan Atkinson’s globally popular creation.
Representing the 2010s is the treasured British icon Paddington, whose beloved cinematic outings Paddington and Paddington 2 premiered in Leicester Square in 2014 and 2017 respectively. Visitors to Leicester Square gardens will be able to sit on a bench and have lunch beside this marmalade loving star of the two BAFTA-nominated films.
Completing the trail and representing the 2020s and the bright future of cinema, is Wonder Woman – DC’s iconic Super Hero who stands for justice, peace and equality. Bursting dynamically through a wall, the figure celebrates the 2020 release of Wonder Woman 1984, starring Gal Gadot.
