SpongeBob has been hanging out with families since 1999 and the silly sponge is still going strong.
He even has a new movie coming out, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run, which will skip theaters to debut digitally in the U.S. early next year. The film follows SpongeBob SquarePants, his bestie Patrick, and the rest of Bikini Bottom’s finest in the first-ever, all-CGI SpongeBob movie.
After SpongeBob’s pet snail Gary is snail-napped, SpongeBob and Patrick take an epic journey to the Lost City of Atlantic City to bring Gary home. Directed by Tim Hill, the voice cast of The SpongeBob Movie includes Tom Kenny, Awkwafina, Clancy Brown, Rodger Bumpass, Bill Fagerbakke, Carolyn Lawrence, Douglas Lawrence, and Reggie Watts.
The film will debut digitally via premium video on demand early next year and then move exclusively to CBS All Access, ViacomCBS’ subscription video on demand and live-streaming service. To further tempt SpongeBob fans, all prior seasons of the Nickelodeon series will also be available on CBS All Access’ expanded service soon.
