Spin Master Entertainment and Nickelodeon Movies greenlit a second PAW Patrol animated feature film, following the release of the first one, PAW Patrol: The Movie, earlier this year.
Entitled PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie, the film will be distributed by Paramount Pictures and released in theaters on October 13, 2023.
Also in the works is a television series spin-off based on one of the main characters from the PAW Patrol preschool show. The spin-off series will debut the same year as The Mighty Movie.
“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 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.”
PAW Patrol: The Movie premiered in August in theaters and on the Paramount+ streaming network, grossing $40 million domestically and over $125 million worldwide. The cast featured the voices of Kim Kardashian, Tyler Perry, Jimmy Kimmel, Yara Shahidi, Marsai Martin, and Dax Shepard — as well as existing voice cast members from the series.
Spin Master also created an extensive toy line in support of the movie, which hit retail on August 1.
“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,” said Brian Robbins, the president and CEO of Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon as well as chief content officer of 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.”
