What to Know About PAW Patrol: The Movie's Run Time, If You're Taking Toddlers to the Theater

PAW Patrol: The Movie, the long-awaited film inspired by the hit kids' TV show on Nickelodeon, is finally here! The movie released in theaters and on Paramount+ on Aug. 20 featuring new characters voiced by Marsai Martin, Yara Shahidi, Dax Shepard, and more. While the movie will likely be a hit with your kids who love PAW Patrol, making the decision to take your toddlers to the theater as opposed to watching at home on Paramount+ could be contingent on the film's running time.

The movie clocks in at 77 minutes long — or an hour and 17 minutes — up until the credits start to roll (with credits it's 86 minutes long). Although that's just about the running time we'd expect for an animated kids' movie, it's still a while to be in a theater with toddlers, so prepare for bathroom breaks and make sure snacks are handy. Or, you can watch it at home, where you can hit pause should one of your kids need to take a break or use the bathroom. Either way, we can already tell that PAW Patrol: The Movie is going to be a new family favorite.
