Spin Master Greenlights ‘PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie’

Production underway on second movie in the popular preschool franchise, following success of this past summer’s ‘PAW Patrol: The Movie’s theatrical release; new film set to debut October 13, 2023, with new spin-off series also slated to hit small screens in 2023.

Building on the success of this past summer’s PAW Patrol: The Movie theatrical and streaming release, as well as the digital, Blu-ray and DVD releases in September and earlier this month, Spin Master has announced production is underway on a second big screen feature, PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie. The CGI animated film, produced in association with Nickelodeon Movies, will be distributed by Paramount Pictures and is set for an exclusive theatrical release on October 13, 2023. Also announced, a new PAW Patrol television series spin-off for one of the main pups is also set to debut in 2023.

“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,” shared Spin Master Entertainment president Jennifer Dodge. “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.”

“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,” commented Brian Robbins, President and CEO, Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon; and Chief Content Officer, Paramount+ Kids and Family. “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.”

The first feature film for the franchise, PAW Patrol: The Movie premiered in August 2021 and, according to Spin Master, grossed $40 million domestically and more than $135 million worldwide, making it the sixth highest grossing animated family film of the year to date. The cast included notable celebrities Marsai Martin; Kim Kardashian West; Dax Shepard; Yara Shahidi; Jimmy Kimmel; and Tyler Perry, as well as voice cast members from the preschool series. The film, which launched simultaneously in theaters and on Paramount+, landed on the streamer’s number one spot with families watching it an average of three times.

Animation director Cal Brunker (PAW Patrol: The Movie; Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature) will return to direct the new film; Dodge will produce along with Spin Master’s senior VP of development and feature film Laura Clunie, and Spin Master’s senior VP of entertainment production & operations Toni Stevens. Spin Master’s co-founder Ronnen Harary, Spin Master’s executive vice president Adam Beder, and Peter Schlessel will executive produce.
