Reality star Kim Kardashian has done a lot of work in the entertainment industry — and now, she'll be adding "voice actress" to the list.
During the 2021 Kids' Choice Awards, Kim made a surprise cameo accompanied by her new PAW Patrol: The Movie co-stars, Tyler Perry, Yara Shahidi, and Marsai Martin. Kim then announced she would also be in the flick, which has fans wondering: Who does she play in the movie?
Who does Kim play in 'Paw Patrol: The Movie?'
Kim previewed just a hint of what was to come at the Kids' Choice Awards. People recounted how she gushed about the movie, saying, "We had such a great time working on this movie. My kids can barely believe it when I said I was going to be in it."
When the casting announcement first came out in October 2020, Kim tweeted gleefully, "I’m officially a cool mom now to my kids! Paw Patrol We’re On A Roll!!!"
Not much else is known about her role in the film, which is based on the children's television show of the same name. PAW Patrol is a Canadian children's television show created by Keith Chapman (of Bob the Builder fame). The show premiered on Nickelodeon on Aug. 12, 2013.
The characters from the show, dogs Chase, Marshall, Rubble, Zuma, Rocky and Skye, will be the main stars of the movie. However, there are also celebrity cameos from Kim Kardashian, Jimmy Fallon, Tyler Perry, Marsai Martin, and Yara Shahidi will all be present. And it sounds like Kim won't be taking over any of the familiar roles from the show, but a role that's entirely her own!
An inside source told People, "Kim's character is a new character being created for her specifically in the film."
The film is set for release in August 2021, so hopefully, she'll give viewers a few more hints about her character before then. Likewise, it sounds like her co-stars are stepping into totally new roles as well, so maybe a spin-off or sequel film will be in order?
Amid her divorce with Kanye West, Kim is ensuring she puts her kids first.
Navigating a divorce with children, especially young children, is never easy, but Kim and Kanye have been navigating co-parenting with grace. An inside source previously explained how the ex-couple keep things light to ensure the kids have the least difficult time. "She leaves the house and he arrives and hangs out with the kids," they told Yahoo! "They have an army of nannies so the transition is easy."
While details of the divorce are still largely under wraps, it's safe to say that both Kim and Kanye will do whatever they can to ensure happiness for their children.
Hopefully Kim's appearance in PAW Patrol: The Movie will add some levity to an otherwise difficult time. You can watch Kim and the rest of the Kardashian-Jenners on Keeping Up With The Kardashians: The Final Season, which begins airing on March 18 at 8 p.m. ET on E!
