Trivia / PAW Patrol: The Movie

Go To

  • Celebrity Voice Actor: The film has some big-name celebrities among the voice cast such as Jimmy Kimmel, Kim Kardashian-West and Randall Park.
    • In the Japanese dub, Liberty is voiced by Natsumi Abe of Morning Musume, notably her first media exposure since she temporarily retired due to childbirth.
  • Cross-Regional Voice Acting:
    • The Latin American Spanish dub offers a quite egregious case: The regular cast, which was voiced by Chilean voice actors, reprise their roles from the TV series, but Liberty, Ruben and Butch are voiced by Mexican celebrities, while there's none of them from the Chilean side.

    • Also applies to the original English version (for countries outside of the British Isles and Oceania), with a mix of American and Canadian actors providing voice work.
  • Demand Overload: When this movie was added to Paramount+, the service displayed error messages to those trying to view it.
  • Promoted Fanboy:
    • Junichi Suwabe, the Japanese voice of Marty the news reporter, is a huge fan of PAW Patrol who watches the show regularly on his own despite being a full-grown adult and immediately accepted the role when offered.
    • Ditto for Jimmy Kimmel's role as Marty Muckraker in the original version of the film. He became a fan of the show via his daughter and has made several jokes about it on his show.
  • Screwed by the Network: Similar to Disney with Raya and the Last Dragon, PAW Patrol: The Movie wound up being blacklisted by a major US theater chain (Regal) over its simultaneous availability on streaming, with Paramount's terms being deemed unacceptable. The film still performed decently, however, and unlike Raya, it was available at Cinemark. Regal and Paramount apparently patched up their differences in time for the latter's next hybrid release, Clifford the Big Red Dog, which did play at the chain.

  • Spoiled by the Merchandise: Liberty joining the team in the middle of the film was spoiled by various pieces of merchandise. In fact, one playset made for the movie was called "Liberty Joins The Team".
  • What Could Have Been: Dolores was originally going to be voiced by Janeane Garofalo. But instead she was voiced by Kim Kardashian-West
