'SpongeBob' Movie 2 Release Date 2015, Official Trailer for 'Sponge Out of Water' Revealed, Watch Here (VIDEO)
The upcoming The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water has released their first officially trailer for the highly anticipated movie.
The American animated comedy film is based on the Nickelodeon television series "SpongeBob SquarePants" created by Stephen Hillenburg. The movie is directed by the show writer and executive producer Paul Tibbitt, and written by Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger.
Plot: SpongeBob and his friends need to go on a quest to discover a stolen recipe that takes them to the real world, where they tangle with a pirate who possesses the recipe along with a book that could change things when written in it. In order to get back the recipe, the gang steal the book and SpongeBob transforms into a superhero named Invincibubble (while Patrick becomes Mr. Superawsomeness, Sandy becomes a real-life squirrel, Mr. Krabs becomes the Iron Man-like Sir Pinch-a-lot, Plankton becomes a yet unknown Hulk-like superhero, and Squidward becomes Sour Note).
The trailer shows the gang forced to leave their 2D cartoon form in the water and take on their new 3D forms on land. The transformed 3D characters are quite a bit different from the cartoon profiles, but 3D seems to fit the characters. The voices for the characters are done by Rodger Bumpass, Tom Kenny, Carolyn Lawrence, Mr. Lawrence, Bill Fagerbakke and Clancy Brown.
The antagonistic pirate in the movie is played by Antonio Banderas. The pirate is looking for ways to hatch an evil plan with his magic book, but lacks the final page that is essential to his scheme.
The owner of the magic book can make anything a reality just by writing it into the book.
The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water is scheduled to be released in theaters on February 6, 2015.
This comes as a sequel to the 2004 animated film The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie and stars the regular television cast (Tom Kenny, Bill Fagerbakke, Rodger Bumpass, Clancy Brown, Carolyn Lawrence and Mr. Lawrence) who are returning to reprise their respective roles from the series and the previous film, with a guest appearance by Antonio Banderas.
The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water is produced by Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount Animation, and will be distributed by Paramount Pictures.
Tibbitt revealed on Twitter in late 2013 that "Steve [Hillenburg] and I wrote the new movie together and he has been in the studio everyday working with us." Production on The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water is expected to finish by November 2014.
