Paramount Pictures will be distributing the movie, which is due out in August 2021.
Spin Master Entertainment is partnering with Nickelodeon Movies for the feature animation of its popular franchise, and has brought in animation veteran Cal Brunker (Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature; Escape From Planet Earth) as director. Spin Master Entertainment’s Jennifer Dodge will produce, while co-founder and co-CEO Ronnen Harary, executive VP strategic partnership and franchise development Adam Beder and Peter Schlessel will executive produce.
“We are thrilled to partner with Paramount and Nickelodeon to bring the Paw Patrol franchise, and the characters that children love, to the big screen,” said Jennifer Dodge. “This first foray into the arena of feature film marks a significant strategic expansion for Spin Master Entertainment and our properties. This demonstrates our commitment to harnessing our own internal entertainment production teams to develop and deliver IP in a motion picture format and allows us to connect our characters to fans through shared theatrical experiences.”
“Expanding Paw Patrol into the world of theatricals is a major milestone for this iconic property, and we can’t wait for kids and families everywhere to experience it together,” added Brian Robbins, president of kids and family entertainment at ViacomCBS. ”We are incredibly excited to work with Spin Master Entertainment and our sister division Paramount Pictures on this latest title from the Nickelodeon Movies slate.”
The Paw Patrol movie will be the first feature film for Spin Master.
