PAW Patrol Gets New Movie & Spin-Off Series


The PAW Patrol franchise is being expanded with a second big-screen feature, PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie, and a new series spin-off for one of the main pups.

Following the global success of PAW Patrol: The Movie—which premiered in August 2021 and grossed $40 million domestically and more than $135 million worldwide—the new CGI animated film is set for an exclusive theatrical release on October 13, 2023.

Cal Brunker (PAW Patrol: The Movie, Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature) will return to direct the film. In the movie, when a magical meteor crash lands in Adventure City, it gives the PAW Patrol pups superpowers, transforming them into The Mighty Pups. PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie is a Spin Master Entertainment production in association with Nickelodeon Movies and will be distributed by Paramount Pictures.

Building on the franchise’s global success, Nickelodeon and Spin Master Entertainment will have a new PAW Patrol TV spin-off in the same year.

“We loved telling a deeper PAW Patrol story on a bigger canvas and are pleased that the movie connected so strongly with kids and families around the world,” said Jennifer Dodge, Spin Master Entertainment’s president. “Judging by the exit polls, audience scores and positive critical reception, everyone had as much fun watching it, and rewatching it, as we did making it. We’re looking forward to taking kids on a new adventure in the second film with our partners and can’t wait to further expand our storytelling with one of the fan-favorite pups in our spin-off.”  

Brian Robbins, president and CEO of Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon and chief content officer of Paramount+ Kids and Family, said, “Just as the first movie’s success in theaters and streaming confirmed PAW Patrol’s status and power as a top, globally loved franchise, this second theatrical release paired with the property’s very first television spin-off will mark another major step in creating a universe of characters and stories to reach even more fans everywhere. We here at Paramount and Nickelodeon are focused on keeping the momentum going with our great partners at Spin Master to keep giving kids and families more PAW Patrol adventures across multiple mediums.”
