Our team is very proud to have been entrusted by Spin Master Entertainment to bring the beloved franchise to the big screen for the very first time.

PAW PATROL:THE MOVIE brings the audience to a brand-new adventure in inventive environments, with the now infamous and lovable characters from the existing series.

It was a very exciting challenge to work on a first film with fully-rendered CG animation. We worked very closely with Cal Brunker and his team to produce this film in full respect of the franchise, while bringing it to a higher level on every aspect – an amazing animation and a much richer look with special effects; all the ingredients to make it a real adventure film.”

Entirely animated in Montreal, the production of this feature animation was put to the test by the global pandemic. When “safer at home” policies began to be implemented in spring 2020, the film was just at its previsualization stage. Within days, Mikros Animation deployed the necessary solutions that allowed their artists to work from home securely, while maintaining regular communication with the director and Spin Master Entertainment production team.

With more than 300 artists in Montreal dedicated to the film working from home, the project was fully completed under lockdown conditions, with additional services provided by the Technicolor group in full collaboration with Mikros Animation to meet any evolving technological challenges.
