Twitter sparks ‘bear battle royale’ between Paddington and Winnie-the-Pooh

Ever since the live-action animated film, Paddington, hit the theaters four years ago, this furry friend has captured the hearts of the audience—both young and old. And with the recent release of its sequel last November, this pantless bear has truly become a sensation.

But when Disney released its teaser trailer for Christopher Robin which features Winnie-the-Pooh, another iconic pantless bear we all loved as kids, this sparked an online battle between the two adorable bears.

A twitter user suggested a UFC-style fight between the two, because apparently, only one fuzzy bear can reign supreme in hearts of the bear-loving moviegoers.

And who doesn’t love a good fight? People were quick to place their bets on who will come out triumphant.

While others insisted that these two friendly bears need not go against each other.

Yet, in all these, we have to remember that Paddington and Winnie-the-Pooh are legendary characters from children’s literature, highly beloved by children all over the world, and plays a huge part in the British culture—even before they made their film debut. So, if they have been able to share the world of books then, why can’t they both exist in the world of film as well?
