Fan favorite Nickelodeon TV show, Spongebob Squarepants, has delightfully announced that a new movie is in the making. However, it doesn’t stop there. Nickelodeon and Netflix joined forces to create a spin-off of this beloved cartoon. This particular spin-off focuses on Spongebob’s easily annoyed neighbor, Squidward Q. Tentacles.

IMDB explains the description of the new movie, Sponge On the Run. “After Spongebob’s beloved pet snail Gary is snail-napped, he and Patrick embark on an epic adventure to The Lost City of Atlantic City to bring Gary home.” This new movie is going to have famous actor Keanu Reeves, who also voiced a character in the new Toy Story movie, Toy Story 4. The movie is going to be made in CGI just like some of the past movies, and include a warm, cheerful Christmas special: “It’s a Spongebob Christmas.”

Though the spin-off does not have many details regarding what it’s supposed to be about, it still has many fans eager and excited to watch it. Hypebeast claims that the show is going to be focusing on Squidward’s musical career. With Netflix as it’s partner, Nickelodeon is sure to be working up a masterpiece that dedicated Spongebob fans are sure to fall in love with.

8th grader Alexander Diaz-Cruz claimed he didn’t even know about the movie. “I wasn’t aware that there was a new Spongebob movie coming out, or that there was a spinoff. I’d be interested in watching both of them.” When asked what animation style he preferred, he said he preferred the original cartoon animation. “I like the cartoon animation better.” 8th grader Adrian Rodriguez also didn’t know there was a new spin-off, however he knew there was a new movie coming out. “I knew about the movie because of Keanu Reeves memes, but the spin-off sounds really cool.”

Creator of Spongebob Stephen Hillengberg actually said that he did not want a spin-off of his show. So the producers are sadly going against his wishes. When Adrian Rodriguez was asked if he knew about this, he had a surprising answer. “Yeah I read about it a while ago.”

Try not to miss these amazing new works of Spongebob! The TV show’s release date has not been announced, but the movie is sure to come out by May 22, 2020.
