Note that this isn't the same as the series in a way, for in the series, the pups are easy going and always ready to save the day, but in this movie, one pup, Chase, isn't really feeling it at first. You also have the new recruit, Liberty, whose dream is to be a part of the Paw Patrol, who gets welcomed by Ryder and the rest of the Paw Patrol with open arms. Now about Chase, he has a pretty dark backstory that you really wouldn't expect a Nick Jr series to have, being abandoned as a young pup in Adventure City, forced to wander it as a stray, which is why he didn't want to return there for missions. The bumbling fool Mayor Humdinger does crazy attempts to take over Adventure City, but the Paw Patrol manage to save the day, and Chase even gets over his fears of the city (and of messing up) and takes a desperate measure to save Ryder. Liberty also becomes a new member of the Paw Patrol, hope to see more of her in the series. This is a excellent movie for everyone, young and old.
