A proper Paw Patrol film is earmarked for the summer of 2021.
Whilst I have a habit of calling Paw Patrol ‘shit Thunderbirds’ in my house, there’s no arguing with its target audience. The stories of a bunch of dogs banding together to rescue people have become a global sensation. So much so that there have already been a couple of cinematic outings for the mutts.
That said, the cinema releases to date have taken the format of one extended episode of the hit Nickelodeon TV show, padding out with a few episodes you could have stayed at home and watched on the telly. But now Paramount Pictures has announced it’s going to be doing this properly: there’s a full Paw Patrol movie on the way.
The film will be directed by Cal Bruncker (The Nut Job 2, Escape From Planet Earth), and it’s coming together really rather quickly. The movie is due in cinemas in August 2021.
No further details as of yet, but I’m going to wager the plot involves some dogs, some gadgets, and a bloody idiot who gets themselves into a position where they need rescuing by the canines concerned.
More as we hear it.
