Spin Master Plans to Release 'PAW Patrol' Theatrical Movie in 2021; New 44-Minute Movie 'Race to the Rescue' During Fall 2019

Spin Master revealed the PAWsome news during their First Quarter 2019 Earnings Conference Call on Thursday, May 9, 2019 that scripts and production for their upcoming animated PAW Patrol theatrical movie was well underway, and that they are targeting a 2021 release for the film!

During their Q119 conference call, Spin Master also revealed that:

-- They believe the PAW Patrol movie will set the foundation for some of their other hit properties to hit the big screen!;

-- They will release a totally redesigned PAW Patrol Lookout Tower and the Mighty Jet Command Centre, as well as new PAW Patrol Power transforming vehicles and a new diecast line at retail during fall 2019!;

-- Following the success of the first 44-minute PAW Patrol movie, "Mighty Pups", released during fall 2018, they will release a second brand-new 44-minute movie, titled "Race to the Rescue", during fall 2019! It's currently unknown whether the movie is the same as the recently announced "Ready Race Rescue" movie, although its highly likely. The film will be followed up by specific retail exclusives!

-- "Mighty Pups" wasn’t released to test the waters, it was actually to get more eyeballs on the PAW Patrol franchise with full-length movies. It just happened to be so strong that people like Walmart went in and they wanted to actually get exclusive around it. And what Spin Master are finding is that the cadence of actually putting out a themed movie and then following it up by 13 or 20 actual episodes the following year and blowing out the theme is a good model for them to employ;

Additionally, Spin Master also confirmed that Abby Hatcher has been renewed for a second season, which is slated to premiere in 2020!
