Leicester Square is usually full of excitement, but now visitors can now watch their favourite film characters come to life.
Yesterday, thanks to the Heart of London Business Alliance and Westminster City Council, bronze statues of nine legendary film characters were unveiled in Leicester Square.
When you first enter the Square, there's a map guiding you to where beloved characters are, although you won't need any help spotting the first few.
Sitting on a bench facing the front of the Shakespeare statue is the eccentric Mr. Bean dressed in his signature smirk and suit. He was by far the most popular attraction, as onlookers waited in line just to have their picture taken next to the incompetent goof.
Just around the corner is Bugs Bunny, surrounded by his favourite snack — carrots — as well as his trusty mailbox.
To the right of everyone's favourite rabbit is Gene Kelly from Singing in the Rain, re-enacting his famous lamppost swing.
There also lies airy Mary Poppins. A group of school girls stood staring up in awe of the fictional nanny, waiting to take a photo under her magical umbrella, possibly hoping to fly away with her.
Speaking of powerful women, in honour of the upcoming film Wonder Woman 1984, you can find the titular superhero as she dramatically busts through one of the walls in the square.
Thinking about eating your lunch in the square? Enjoy a meal with Paddington Bear, who is depicted eating his trademark marmalade sandwich (how many statues can one bear possibly need?).
The remaining statues do not lie on ground-level, but up above. Catch Batman keeping a watchful eye over those below, as the caped crusader stands mighty atop the Odeon Luxe Theatre.
Last but certainly not least, the comedy duo Laurel and Hardy teeter hand in hand of the edge of the TKTS booth roof. They're only a few metres high, but the classic scene referenced takes place on a skyscraper from the 1929 film Liberty.
These statues are here to stay long-term and free of charge, so check them out when you get the chance.
