PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie is a 2023 Canadian computer-animated superhero comedy film based on the television series PAW Patrol created by Keith Chapman. Produced by Spin Master Entertainment, the toy company behind the series, and released by Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies, it is the sequel to PAW Patrol: The Movie (2021) and the second film under the Spin Master Entertainment banner. Directed by Cal Brunker, who co-wrote the screenplay with Bob Barlen from a story by Brunker, Barlen, and Shane Morris, it features elements from the Mighty Pups sub-theme of the series. The ensemble voice cast includes Mckenna Grace, Taraji P. Henson, Marsai Martin, Christian Convery, Kim Kardashian, North West, Saint West, James Marsden, Kristen Bell, and introducing Finn Lee-Epp in his film debut as Ryder. In the film, the PAW Patrol pups, who were transformed into Mighty Pups with superpowers when a magical meteor crash-lands in Adventure City, must stop the supervillains when Mayor Humdinger escapes from prison and teams up with Victoria Vance to steal the pups’ crystals before they can. Meanwhile, Skye (Grace), who has been unappreciated by the rest of the team, sets out to make the biggest difference.

It was officially greenlit by Spin Master in November 2021, with a planned October 13, 2023 release date before being pushed forward for a September 2023 release, with Brunker returning to direct. Mikros Image in Montreal returned to provide animation, while the musical score was composed by Pinar Toprak, replacing Heitor Pereira from the first film.
