Ryder (Finn Lee-Epp) and his band of superhero pups, including Skye (Mckenna Grace), Chase (Christian Convery) Marshall (Christian Corrao) and Liberty (Marsai Martin), are busy doing what they do best: protecting the citizens of Adventure City. But when a mad, meteor-obsessed scientist called Victoria Vance (Taraji P. Henson) steals a magnet to help her machine bring meteors to Earth, things get out of hand and PAW Patrol Headquarters is destroyed.
Skye soon discovers that the meteor contains remarkable crystals that give her super strength as well as the ability to fly. The other pups all gain individual superpowers too, except for Liberty who can’t seem to work out what her superpower is.
Meanwhile, Victoria is taken to jail where she encounters former Mayor Humdinger (Ron Pardo) and they hatch a plot to break out of jail and steal the crystals in order to gain ultimate power for themselves.
When Skye’s crystal is stolen, she struggles with feelings of inadequacy and takes matters into her own hands, losing more than she ever imagined in the process. Will the pups be able to work together to foil Victoria’s evil plot or will Adventure City pay the price for her selfish ways? Will Liberty ever find her superpower? And will Skye, the smallest pup, ever find a way to make a big difference?
