The sequel to adventure comedy “The SpongeBob SquarePants” movie has been announced and will be released next year!
Its 2004 prequel was based on the popular television cartoon series “SpongeBob SquarePants”, which shows the adventures of the title character and his various friends. The storyline of the film is yet to be revealed but it will take the endeavours of SpongeBob forward. It will feature the same voice cast as that in the first film to portray the characters as the television show including Tom Kenny as SpongeBob and Bill Fagerbakke as Patrick Star.
The film’s cheeky poster has been released, which shows SpongeBob taking a departure in terms of animation, as the film looks to be more CG animated as opposed to being a cartoon, like the television series and the previous film.
The movie will be directed and written by Paul Tibbitt, who was a writer for the television series from 1999 until 2004. He was also screenwriter and storyboard artist for the first film, but this will be his first time as a director.
Actor Antonio Banderas will play a pirate in both live action parts of the film as well as animated parts. Former “Guns N Roses” guitarist Slash is also set to appear in the film, although his role is yet to be announced. And that’s all we know for now, really. Oh, and one more thing. Produced by Nickelodeon & Paramount pictures, “The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie: Sponge Out Of Water” is slated to release on 6th February 2015.
It ain’t far away, peeps! We’ll leave you now with the theme song that we’re sure all SpongeBob Squarepants fans know the words to by heart:
