Paramount has released a new poster for PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie. A sequel to 2021's hit PAW Patrol: The Movie, the film is based on the massively successful animated series at Nickelodeon.

The movie, coming to theaters and Paramount+ this fall, will see the PAW Patrol get super powers after coming in contact with a magical meteor.

While the first teaser poster featured a shadowy look at the pups in their hero forms, the new one features each of their faces around a stylized meteor logo, with their Mighty Pups vehicles featured below, and gives us a first look at the film's antagonist. You can see it here.

While the movie will introduce a new villain named Victoria Vance, the synopsis also promises that "Humdinger breaks out of jail," suggesting that in the world of the movie, the series' main antagonist has been in custody following his first shenanigans in Adventure City in PAW Patrol: The Movie.

Here's the film's official synopsis:

"When a magical meteor crash lands in Adventure City, it gives the PAW Patrol pups superpowers, transforming them into The MIGHTY PUPS! For Skye, the smallest member of the team, her new powers are a dream come true. But things take a turn for the worse when the pups' archrival Humdinger breaks out of jail and teams up with Victoria Vance, a meteor-obsessed mad scientist, to steal the superpowers and turn themselves into supervillains. With the fate of Adventure City hanging in the balance, the Mighty Pups have to stop the supervillains before it's too late, and Skye will need to learn that even the smallest pup can make the biggest difference."

Mckenna Grace takes on the role of Skye, the 7-year-old cockapoo with the power of flight and strength in PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie. She replaces Lilly Bartlam from the series and first film. Grace is most known for her roles in films like Ghostbusters: Afterlife, I, Tonya, and Captain Marvel, and the sitcom Young Sheldon, and will soon be seen in Ghostbusters: Firehouse.

Taraji P. Henson takes on the role of Victoria Vance, a meteor expert and the female villain who teams up with Mayor Humdinger. Henson is set to feature in the much-anticipated coming-of-age tale The Color Purple. On the heroic side, Marsai Martin, who is most known for her role on black-ish, returns as Liberty, the lively long-haired dachshund who was part of the PAW Patrol in Adventure City and leads the Junior Patrollers with her incredible Mighty Pup power of elasticity. Martin previously portrayed Liberty in the first film.

Christian Convery, best known for Sweet Tooth, takes the lead as Chase, the brave and independent 7-year-old German shepherd with the Mighty Pup power of super speed, replacing Luke Dietz from the series and Iain Armitage from the first film. Adding to the fun, Chris Rock joins the adventure as a unique version of Rubble, now a member of the Kitten Catastrophe Crew, who gains the ability to speak after getting his paws on a meteor fragment.

While the upcoming sequel features other big names, such as Kristen Bell, James Marsden, and even Serena Williams, the Kardashians are making a full sweep in PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie. In addition to Kim Kardashian, who will be returning as the sassy poodle Delores, Kim’s two children are set to make an appearance. North West stars as Mini, a Pomeranian who is one of the Junior Patrollers, and Saint West in an undisclosed role.

The upcoming film will see the return of animation director Cal Brunker, who has previously directed PAW Patrol: The Movie and Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature. The movie's screenplay was written by Cal Brunker and Bob Barlen, both of whom also wrote the first one. Both Brunker and Barlen also worked on the story for the new film, alongside Shane Morris. Leading the production team are Jennifer Dodge, President of Spin Master Entertainment, along with Laura Clunie, Senior Vice President of Development and Feature Film at Spin Master, and Toni Stevens, Senior Vice President of Entertainment Production & Operations at Spin Master, who will serve as producers for the film. Taking on the executive producer roles are Ronnen Harary, Co-Founder of Spin Master, Adam Beder, Executive Vice President at Spin Master, and Peter Schlessel.

In their press release, Dodge quotes:

“We loved telling a deeper PAW Patrol story on a bigger canvas and are pleased that the movie connected so strongly with kids and families around the world,” said Jennifer Dodge, Spin Master Entertainment’s President. “Judging by the exit polls, audience scores and positive critical reception, everyone had as much fun watching it, and rewatching it, as we did making it. We’re looking forward to taking kids on a new adventure in the second film with our partners and can’t wait to further expand our storytelling with one of the fan-favorite pups in our spin-off.”
