First Look at 'PAW Patrol: The Movie' Logo

The award‐winning Paris and Montreal-based animation studio has announced the PAWsome news that Mikros Animation Montreal is collaborating with Spin Master Entertainment to bring PAW Patrol’s beloved rescue pups to the big screen for the first time! And to celebrate, the studio, a Technicolor company, has unveiled a super first look at PAW Patrol The Movie's logo!


Currently in its sixth season, PAW Patrol follows a pack of heroic rescue pups—Chase, Marshall, Rubble, Skye, Rocky, Zuma, Everest and Tracker—who are led by a tech-savvy boy named Ryder. Together, they work hard to show the people of Adventure Bay that “no job is too big, no pup is too small!” The series features a curriculum that focuses on citizenship, social skills and problem-solving. Nickelodeon recently renewed PAW Patrol for a seventh season of 26 half-hour episodes.

PAW Patrol: The Movie was originally announced announced in November 2017, and is currently slated for a late-2021 release. The movies' synopsis has yet to be announced.

Mikros Image (Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, Asterix: The Secret of the Magic Potion) is also currently hard at work producing Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount Animation's third SpongeBob SquarePants theatrical, The SpongeBob Movie: It's a Wonderful Sponge, currently scheduled to debut in theatres on Friday, May 22, 2020.

Update (11/11) - Spin Master recently revealed in their Third Quarter 2019 Earnings Conference Call that they are now targeting a late-2021 release date for PAW Patrol The Movie: "Progress continues for the first-ever theatrical animated PAW Patrol film, which we are targeting for release in late 2021, and we believe PAW Patrol will set the foundation for other properties to follow onto the big screen."

The company also gave a few updates about PAW Patrol:

- "In Q2, we launched a new season of PAW Patrol franchise and products, based on the season six Mighty PAW theme. Since the launch, PAW Patrol has grown through the third quarter. PAW Patrol has higher consumer engagement than ever before. This is a testament to our strategy of refreshing themes to keep the characters and stories relevant."

- "In Pre-School and Girls, our core brand showed strong double-digit year-over-year sales growth, led by Twisty Petz and PAW Patrol, up 6 percent in Q3, and sales of Candylocks and Pre Cool, offset by sales of Party Popteenies in Q3 2018, which was unsuccessful and did not carry forward into 2019."

- "PAW continues to be the leading preschool licence globally. We saw positive POS growth in Europe and especially strong POS growth in Germany, Russia, Poland, and Slovakia in particular. In Asia, the launch in Japan continues to gain momentum in Q3. In the US, POS for PAW Patrol declined mid-single digit. We saw an impact on POS due to launch of Toy Story 4, which both targeted the same consumer. Overall, however, we expect PAW POS to grow in Q4 with the launch of the new, higher price-point items, including the Mighty Lookout Tower, as well as the Fire Truck and Jet."

- The Pre-school and Girls category saw strong performance, driven by fresh themes in PAW Patrol and innovative new product lines. In Q2, we began shipping the new Mighty Pups line, and volume grew globally in Q3. This fall, we introduced the Ready Race Rescue TV special and new toy items that brings the theme to life. Overall, we’ve seen significant growth in views of our content. The Mighty Pups trailer was our top-performing PAW Patrol content ever with 34 million views. We are excited about the launch of our lower price-point die-cast line, which was successfully launched at the beginning of Q3. We remain confident in PAW Patrol’s prospects for 2019 and beyond based on upcoming content, new themes, and innovative products."
