The SpongeBob Movie: A Sponge on the Run Trailer

It may seem hard to believe but SpongeBob SquarePants just celebrated its 20th anniversary this year and it was also recently renewed for a 13th season, but in the meantime, the show is also about to get its third feature film. Unlike the previous films, The SpongeBob Movie: A Sponge on the Run will be the first CG-animated feature, directed by former series writer Tim Hill (Alvin and the Chipmunks, Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties). The plot finds SpongeBob and Patrick attempting to rescue Gary who has been “snailnapped” by Poseidon and, as we’ve come to expect, the movie also features several celebrity cameos including the likes of Awkwafina, Reggie Watts, Snoop Dogg, and (obviously) Keanu Reeves. The last SpongeBob movie was released in 2015 and made $325 million worldwide so it seems safe to assume there is still an audience out there for this. The SpongeBob Movie: A Sponge on the Run hits theatres on May 22nd; check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
