No animated character is as popular as Spongebob from the millennials to kids of this day. However, like every significant pop-culture icon, this beloved character is also getting more attention from the streaming service. And once again, Netflix is all in for the gold.
Nickelodeon is the parent company for the rights associated with Sponge stories, and they’ve adapted the show into a movie. Meanwhile, kids still love the stories of this fictional world full of happiness and fun. Also, creators of the show are mindful of sneaking in some adult humour into the show for the parents who might watch along.
However, we’re not discussing the old school series. It’s about the new movie. Titled-“The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run” it’s categorised as an Animation Comedy.
Fuss around the schedule of the movie:-
COVID-19 pandemic has hit every sector insight, in 2020, and entertainment is no exception. Regarding this movie, the plan was to make it just an everyday cinematic experience and tour it through the theatres.
However, 2020 is all about destroying the plans and making people improvise. Nickelodeon & Paramount Pictures were put into a spiral of postponement and cancellations ever since the restrictions kicked in. On August 22, 2020, the movie came out for exclusive premieres.
Now, Netflix has struck a deal with Nick that lets the streaming service put the movie with the vast catalogue. Finally, Netflix has confirmed that The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run will debut in November 2020.
Another exciting news is that this won’t be exclusive to some countries, it’s international. All 150+ countries with Netflix available will get the joy of this movie.
The spirit of the new revamped version:-
Tim Hill, who was involved with the original old school series, is writing this story. However, The plot again follows SpongeBob & Patrick on a rescue mission to save Gary.
The story is fairly straight-forward. It almost uses the same storyline as the previous two movies where Spongebob needs to save something that was stolen. Meawhile, Plankton tries to get the secret formula while the heroes are gone.
And just like the in other instalments, Spongebob and Patrick’s journey is where the thrill is. Like the second part, expect a lot of quirky and fun moments. Without letting out any spoilers, expect musical numbers, zombies, and gambling.
