The yellow sponge living in a pineapple under the sea makes a comeback with the new movie coming out in May of 2020, titled Sponge on the Run.Unlike the past movies which were mostly in 2D animation, fans of the sponge were surprised at the new and colorful world of all 3D animation. 

The movie centers around Spongebob SquarePants (Tom Kenny) and his friends being thrown into another adventure, someone having stolen something of utmost importance, this time being Spongebob’s pet snail: Gary. 

With the help of his best friend Patrick Star (Bill Fagerbakke), Mr. Krabs (Clancy Brown), Sandy Cheeks (Carolyn Lawrence) and Squidward Tentacles (Rodger Bumpass), they board a familiar and redesigned version of the beloved krabby patty car from the first Spongebob Movie from 2004.

They travel to new places such as the lost city of Atlantic City, a casino, and a desert, meeting Sage (Keeanu Reeves), in hopes to get Gary back.

Directed by Tim Hill, he is known for the beloved first spongebob movie, Hop (2011) and is a writer and producer for the TV show.

It’s set to release on May 22, 2020.
