The PAW Patrol is still on a roll.

This summer’s PAW Patrol: The Movie was a success for Spin Master and moved the needle back in the right direction for the PAW Patrol brand in the toy department. Now, the company is making plans for a sequel: PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie.

Spin Master Entertainment will produce the CGI animated film in association with Nickelodeon Movies. Paramount Pictures will bring the pups back to the big screen for an exclusive theatrical release on Oct. 13, 2023. Additionally, Nickelodeon and Spin Master Entertainment have begun work on a spin-off TV series for one of the main pups that will also 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,” says 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.”

In PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie, a meteor crashes in Adventure City activating superpowers within the pups and 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 a mad scientist to steal the superpowers for the two villains.


Animation vet Cal Brunker returns to direct while Dodge, Laurie Clunie, and Toni Stevens will produce for Spin Master Entertainment.

Spin Master co-founder Ronnen Harary will executive produce alongside Spin Master Executive Vice President Adam Beder and former Focus Features CEO Peter Schlessel (PAW Patrol: The Movie,  Drive, Insidious: Chapter 3).
