The History Of The ‘Paw Patrol’ Franchise
Paw Patrol, which is now in its tenth year, began as a TV show and follows a tech-savvy child and his heroic troop of dogs. The 2021 film adaptation outperformed expectations and became a surprising blockbuster, grossing $40 million domestically and more than $144 million internationally, a significant sum considering it launched simultaneously on Paramount+ and came amid box office pandemics. Taraji P. Henson, Kristen Bell, Christian Convery, Brice Gonzalez, Mckenna Grace, and Lil Rel Howery have lent their voice acting skills to the second movie coming out on Friday!
