Shopkins: The Movie is a 2019 animated comedy film based on the Moose Toys brand of the same name, as well as the cartoon webseries adaptation. It was directed by Paul Gillett, Joss Whedon and Matthew O'Callaghan from a screenplay by Gillett, Mark Zaslove, Kirk DeMicco, C. H. Greenblatt and Matt Kinmonth and story by Gillett, O'Callaghan and Zaslove.

The film is a continuation of the cartoon, which was produced from 2014 to 2018, as well as the fifth and final film based on the toy line and the cartoon. Like the cartoon, the film blends traditional animation with 3D CGI scenery and objects, which are animated by Rough Draft Korea, and Pixel Zoo Animations, respectively.

Kate Murphy, Aziz Ansari, Marieve Herington, Brianna Plantano, Cassandra Lee Morris, Doug Erholtz, Abby Trott, Kayli Mills and Erika Harlacher reprise their respective roles from the cartoon, while Andy Samberg, Sigourney Weaver, Lauren London and Chris "Ludacris" Bridges join the voice cast. In addition to Murphy, Erholtz, Trott and Harlacher reprising their roles, they voice new characters who are introduced in the film, such as Poppy Corn, Carlo Coffee Pot, Popette, and Pam Cake.

The film premiered in Australia on October 25, 2019 and was theatrically released in the United States on November 1 by Universal Pictures. It received positive reviews from critics and fans alike, who praised the animation, humor, voice acting, sentimentality, and musical score. It grossed over $319.5 million worldwide against a budget of $70 million.
