“This year marks the 10th anniversary of the PAW Patrol franchise and what better way to celebrate than the release of our second feature film,” said producer Jennifer Dodge, Spin Master’s President of Entertainment. “As we continue to expand the PAW Patrol universe for fans, we’ll follow the pups on mightier missions and explore their backstories, this time with a heartwarming tale centered around our heroine, Skye. With this cast of dynamic voice talent, we’re bringing a whole new level of excitement to the big screen.”

Ramsey Naito, President of Nickelodeon Animation & Paramount Animation, added, “Following the historic success of the first film, which truly reinforced the global love for this franchise, we knew that this sequel called not only for an equally great story, but for world-class talent to bring these characters to life once again.”

The powerhouse franchise’s first feature film premiered in theaters in 2021, opening in the No. 1 spot in more than 25 countries and amassing over $150 million worldwide at the box office. With a simultaneous day and date release on Paramount+ in the U.S., the film quickly became one of the most watched Paramount+ originals. Since the service’s launch, PAW Patrol: The Movie has been watched five times on average per subscriber household, making it the most consumed movie on the service.

The follow-up feature sees veteran animation director Cal Brunker (PAW Patrol: The Movie, Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature) return to direct where he has reunited with his writing partner Bob Barlen (PAW Patrol: The Movie, Bigfoot Family), who takes on the role as associate producer. Dodge, with Spin Master’s SVP Development Current Series & Feature Film Laura Clunie and SVP Entertainment Production & Operations Toni Stevens, produce the film. Spin Master’s Co-Founder Ronnen Harary, Executive Vice President Adam Beder and Peter Schlessel executive produce.

Synopsis: When a magical meteor crash lands in Adventure City, it gives the PAW Patrol pups superpowers, transforming them into The Mighty Pups! For Skye, the smallest member of the team, her new powers are a dream come true. But things take a turn for the worse when the pups’ archrival Humdinger breaks out of jail and teams up with Victoria Vance, a meteor-obsessed mad scientist, to steal the superpowers and turn themselves into supervillains. With the fate of Adventure City hanging in the balance, the Mighty Pups have to stop the supervillains before it’s too late, and Skye will need to learn that even the smallest pup can make the biggest difference.
