Parents, are you ready to hear some puptastic news? PAW Patrol: The Movie is getting an exclusive theatrical 2023 sequel! Okay, maybe this isn’t a big deal for you, but I bet your little ones are going to freak out. Just imagine the elated looks on their cherubic faces when you deliver the good news after they come home from school. Spin Master Entertainment, Nickelodeon Movies, and Paramount Pictures are behind the sequel, titled PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie.

In addition to announcing PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie, Nickelodeon and Spin Master Entertainment are also developing a new PAW Patrol TV series spinoff that centers on an existing member of the PAW Patrol.

In PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie, a magical meteor crash lands in Adventure City, and 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’ arch-rival Humdinger breaks out of jail and teams with a mad scientist to steal the superpowers for the two villains. 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.

PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie will be released exclusively in theaters on October 13, 2023.

The first PAW Patrol movie grossed $135 million at the global box office. With numbers like that, it’s no wonder that the film’s director, Cal Brunker, has been invited back to helm the sequel. The PAW Patrol movie starred several celebrities as members of the voice cast, including Marsai Martin, Kim Kardashian West, Dax Shepard, Yara Shahidi, Jimmy Kimmel, and Tyler Perry, in addition to existing cast members from the insanely popular animated series. PAW Patrol: The Movie was released day-and-date on Paramount+ and was a major hit for the streamer.

“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.”

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