Previously, SpongeBob made his way to the big screen in 2004’s “The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie”. Last month, it was announced that a new SpongeBob movie is in the works – in 3D!

The new movie, produced by Nickelodeon & Paramount pictures, “The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie: Sponge Out Of Water”, will feature SpongeBob getting out of the ocean for his most super-heroic adventure yet. While you can expect the animated adventure to be just another long-form episode of the show, the makers have got a few tricks up their sleeves for this one.

For starters, in this movie, the animated sections will be in 3D, blending both CGI and hand-drawn techniques. There will also be some live action scenes which will be folded into the animated stuff. Think cartoon and real life worlds colliding.
