The new film sees Ryder and the rest of the crew being called to Adventure City to stop Mayor Humdinger from turning the bustling metropolis into a state of chaos.
Paw Patrol is being directed by animation veteran Cal Brunker (Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature and Escape From Planet Earth). Spin Master Entertainment’s executive vice president Jennifer Dodge is the producer. Executive producers are Ronnen Harary, Spin Master’s co- founder and co-CEO; Adam Beder, Spin Master’s executive vice president of strategic partnership & franchise development; and Peter Schlessel.
The Paw Patrol film, first unveiled in February, is the first of several feature films in the works by Spin Master’s Entertainment division. The series airs in over 160 countries in 30 languages and is currently in its seventh season on Nickelodeon, having already been renewed for an eighth season.
