Despite Police Loathing in News Media, ‘Paw Patrol’ Film Coming Soon



In spite of the media’s amplification of the radical idea of defunding local police precincts, the idea of the animated series Paw Patrol actually getting canceled was always a long shot. The show was renewed for an eighth season earlier this year. Paw Patrol follows a little boy, Ryder, and his team of pups, who save the day in their fictional town. There’s Marshall, a firefighting Dalmatian, and Skye, the fearless cockapoo who flies around on lookout. But one of the most popular characters is the German shepherd Chase, who happens to be a cop.


Still, after the official Twitter feed posted a tweet that seemed to lean into identity politics, some began calling for the program to be cancelled for it’s glorification of police. Twitter’s gonna do what Twitter’s gonna do…




Fortunately, the fervor has died down and now Paramount Pictures, Nickelodeon Movies, and Spin Master Entertainment have just released a set of first look images from their upcoming animated kids’ adventure, Paw Patrol: The Movie, opening in theatres August 20, 2021. The film, based on the hit animated TV series created by Keith Chapman, is directed by Cal Brunker and produced by Jennifer Dodge. Billy Frolick and Brunker & Bob Barlen wrote the screenplay from a story by Frolick. Ronnen Harary, Adam Beder, and Peter Schlessel are executive producers.


In the film. the PAW Patrol is on a roll! When their biggest rival, Humdinger, becomes Mayor of nearby Adventure City and starts wreaking havoc, Ryder and everyone’s favorite heroic pups kick into high gear to face the challenge head on. While one pup must face his past in Adventure City, the team finds help from a new ally, the savvy dachshund Liberty. Together, armed with exciting new gadgets and gear, the PAW Patrol fights to save the citizens of Adventure City! Joining the PAW Patrol in their thrilling first big screen adventure are members from the original series’ cast along with Iain Armitage, Marsai Martin, Yara Shahidi, Kim Kardashian West, Randall Park, Dax Shepard, with Tyler Perry and Jimmy Kimmel and introducing Will Brisbin.

I'm not as much of a "CoMiCs NeEd MoAr DiVeRsItY & iNcLuSiOn" advocate as my girlfriend often is, but we both love funny books, crispy bacon, straight bourbon and hip hop. Add yet, we never vote the same, so we cancel each other out... and that works perfectly in my book!
