Throwback: Titled PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie, the next movie will see Kim reprise her role from the original as a poodle named Delores (pictured), Deadline reports.
The first PAW Patrol movie was adapted from a Canadian television cartoon of the same name that aired on Nickelodeon in the United States.
North has seen social media success in recent months, appearing frequently on a TikTok account that she shares with her mom.
Her TikTok fame comes after Kanye publicly expressed his strong objections to letting his eldest son onto the platform.
Kim and Kanye, who wed in 2014 and finalized their divorce last year, share four children — North, nine, Saint, seven, Chicago, four, and Psalm, three.
In the past year, Kanye has seen his career crumble and his multi-billion dollar fortune plummet after a series of anti-Semitic attacks in interviews and on social media.
North and Saint’s film roles follow a social media buzz about ‘new kids’ who are said to have landed jobs in the entertainment industry through family ties.
The focus has been on an abundance of rising stars with famous parents, from Johnny Depp’s daughter Lily-Rose Depp to Andie MacDowell’s daughter Margaret Qualley.
Maude Apatow, whose father is Judd Apatow, and Maya Hawke, whose parents are Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, have risen to fame in recent years as well.
Other bold names include Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon, Heidi Klum’s daughter Lenny Klum, Cindy Crawford’s daughter Kaia Gerber, and Elvis Presley’s granddaughter.
Online chatter about the “new babies” came to a head in December after New York magazine published a viral cover story about the phenomenon.
Dakota Johnson, whose parents are Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith and whose grandmother is Hitchcock blonde Tippi Hedren, was one of the faces on the cover.
Jamie Lee Curtis, daughter of psychic actress Janet Leigh and Some Like It Hot Dreamboat Tony Curtis, then waded into the debate.
Describing herself as the “OG Nepo Baby,” she complained, “The current conversation around newborns is designed only to try to diminish, distort, and harm.”
