The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water is the sequel to the film which graced box-offices in 2004, so it seems odd to wait a whole 11 years to release a sequel – yes, it’s not out until after you’ve chanted in the New Year.
This time round, SpongeBob Squarepants (Tom Kenny) goes on a quest to discover a stolen recipe that takes him to our dimension, our world, where he tangles with a pirate. The sizeable cast also includes Antonio Banderas – most recently seen in a cheesy commercial talking to animated food items which should also remain non-animated in real life, Clancy Brown, Thomas F Wilson, Bill Fagerbakke, Rodger Bumpass, Mr. Lawrence, Kaitlyn Ervin and Carolyn Lawrence, and directing reins are in the hands of Paul Tibbitt, who has done the honours with a number of episodes beforehand.
You’ve got a while to wait, though, as The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water isn’t out in the UK until March 20th 2015, two weeks after the US release date.
