The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run - Now Releasing March 2021

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run - From Paramount Pictures


SpongeBob fans have been waiting a long time for the next major motion picture from the Bikini Bottom crew.  If you remember, I shared the trailer of The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run what seems like an eternity ago - back in November 2019 - you know, before masks, and social distancing, and COVID turned the world upside down.  I got a sneak peek of the trailer at The Geekly Retreat when I visited the Paramount Pictures studio lot, and then shared my son's reaction when it was released to the public just a week or so later.  Take a look at his reaction to the original The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run trailer below:


The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run 2021 Updates!


After delays due to COVID, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run finally has updated release information AND a new trailer - both of which I'm excited to share.  SpongeBob will join a long list of family movies to release straight to Video on Demand and will be available from a variety of digital retailers or you can find it streaming on Paramount+ on Thursday, March 4th!

A new trailer was also released this week, but you can see in this trailer that it's very similar to the old one with just a few minor tweaks - including highlighting some of the celebrity appearances.  I already delighted in our original reaction about Keanu's guest appearance, but this new trailer shows a few more that you won't want to miss.  Who do you see?


You'll also see less of an emphasis on the visit to the Atlantic City-like destination.  I'm curious if there were actual story updates in the almost year delay of the release or if the trailer just chose to highlight some of the celebrities involved instead to generate excitement with fans - old and young.  

What do you think?  Will you be tuning in to The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run this March?


The wait is OVER and my review is up!  Check out The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run Review!
