‘PAW Patrol: The Movie’ Boasts a Star-Studded Cast of Voice Talent
PAW Patrol — the beloved kid’s television show that airs on Nickelodeon with a range of lively, spunky pups who solve puzzles and have adventures — is about to hit the big screen, and with a cast of megastars (like Kim Kardashian!), to boot. PAW Patrol: The Movie will surely be a favorite of kids and parents alike as they clamor into the theaters to see the pups battle the obnoxious Mayor Humdinger. So what’s the allure of the PAW Patrol movie? Why is there such anticipation for this film? Keep reading to learn more about the movie and its talented cast.
What’s with the ‘PAW Patrol’ craze?
There are several reasons people are looking forward to this film. The first is that parents like the movie’s premise and the show’s reputation for being wholesome and relatable. Adults take comfort in the roles of the pups: the brave leader, Chase, the intrepid helicopter pilot Skye, the bashful Dalmatian Marshall, a host of other cute pups, and a new puppy named Liberty. During the film, the pups will show off equipment upgrades and continue fighting evil. IMDb also reveals that the pups are going to have to confront their evil, conspiring mayor and save Adventure City. Throughout the film, each pup is portrayed as being capable of solving problems, which sets a good example for their children and doesn’t discourage them.
Secondly, parents and kids have wanted a movie version of this show for ages after quite a bit of drama surrounding the show. At one point, there was a bizarre moment in American politics when then White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said that the show was canceled. This prompted much disarray in the media and other politicians — as well as for spokespeople for the show, who had to repeatedly correct the misinformation. For many youngsters, hearing from the government that one’s favorite show was going to be canceled prompted them to appreciate the series even more.
Not only did fans fear that the show was going to be canceled thanks to a ridiculous political argument — but there were several legitimate hiccups during the production of the movie. Since the movie was created in 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the cast had to telecommute to perform their roles. The ups and downs have made kids anticipate the release of the film even more.
The voice cast of ‘PAW Patrol: The Movie’ has families excited
For their part, Spin Entertainment and Nickelodeon Movies are making the movie even more awesome for kids by including a stellar lineup of voice actors. Anxious fans of all ages have awaited Paw Patrol: The Movie, and are eager to see it on the big screen. You won’t believe who else will be doing the voice acting for the film — aside from Kardashian, who plays a poodle named Delores.
The movie stars: Lilly Bartlam (Skye), Will Brisbin (Ryder), Keegan Hedley (Rubble), Kingsley Marshall (Marshall), Ron Pardo (Mayor Humdinger), and Shayle Simons (Zuma) in their traditional roles on the show. So fans will not be disappointed by their favorite characters being replaced with new voice actors or actresses, and most of the pups will be played by the same kids who normally play them.
The new cast features star-studded celebs like Iain Armitage from Young Sheldon as Chase. Marsai Martin from Black-ish will play a new pup, Liberty. The ever-talented Yara Shahidi will play Kendra Wilson, a scientist who brings the pups their new gear. Randall Park from Young Rock will play Butch. The lucky Dax Shepard will voice Ruben. Jimmy Kimmel will bring a new character, Marty Muckraker, to life. Lastly, the unstoppable Tyler Perry will do the voice of Gus.
