The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water is a film based on Nickelodeon's hit TV show SpongeBob SquarePants. In this movie, SpongeBob needs to go on a quest to discover a stolen recipe that takes him to our dimension, our world, where he tangles with a pirate (said by Tom Kenny)[4].

Introduction

This is the second movie in the SpongeBob SquarePants franchise and is the sequel to "The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie." It arises to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the series (which started in 1999) as well commemorating 10 years since the first movie was released on November 19, 2004. This follows a trend of anniversaries being celebrated within the series with "Truth or Square" (2009) celebrating 10 years since "Help Wanted" which aired in 1999.

The animated segments of the movie are set to be directed by Paul Tibbitt who, on October 11, 2012, confirmed the second movie's release and posted the concept logo on his Twitter account.[5] He has further confirmed that this movie will have the same animation from the TV series and its predecessor. Like the first movie, this movie will feature live-action segments. These are directed by Mike Mitchell with scenes being shot in Savannah, Georgia and Tybee Island. Filming began on September 30, 2013 and lasted through November 5, 2013.[6] Locations where the movie was being filmed were made to look like beach communities with new décor being introduced. Mitchell further revealed the movie would be a mix of 2D and CGI animation as well as Live-action segments.[7]

Storyline

The storyline of the movie entails SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, Mr. Krabs, Sandy and Plankton going to find a stolen recipe which takes them to the real world. There they tangle with a pirate who possesses a book which makes what ever he writes in it come true. SpongeBob and co. manage to get hold of the book and turn into superheroes to fight the pirate.[4]

Animation

Viacom president and CEO Philippe Dauman said on hollywoodreporter.com:

"We will be releasing a SpongeBob movie at the end of 2014, which will serve to start off or be one of our films that starts off our new animation effort"[13] Of course, we now know the movie will be released on February 6, 2015 in the United States.[1]

Filming

On July 11, 2013, it was announced that the film will start filming for the live action scenes in the Savannah area in Georgia in September, October and November 2013 for approximately 40 days.[14] City of Savannah Film Services director Jay Self said "we are very excited to be working with Paramount [Pictures] on this project [...] We know from experience how valuable the investment and exposure generated by a project like this can be for our community."[15]

Music

The original score for the movie is being composed by John Debney.[16]

On December 26, 2014, a track was released for the movie by the band known as "N*E*R*D." Chad Hugo stated in an interview with Variety that "[They're] trying not to think too much in a cartoon sense, but more just like a psychedelic, otherworldy type of thing. If you want to draw a parallel, maybe think of what the Beatles did with 'Yellow Submarine." The track is called "Squeeze Me" which was officially released as a single on January 5, 2015.[17]

Trivia

Timeline
Timecards
none
  • It can be inferred from the trailers that the traditionally-animated sequences of the film will use a mix of the character designs from Season 9 and first film, as well as the same color scheme of the first movie.
  • This is the first SpongeBob film to make a meta-reference, poking fun at certain story elements and reality, as a fish says, "Alright, all secondary characters come with me."
  • This is the second time in the series that Squidward has produced ink. The first was in "Giant Squidward."
  • The two posters for the film, when both taglines are combined read "He's leaving his world behind; Making waves in our world."
  • In the first two trailers, Welcome to the Jungle (song) by Guns N' Roses is heard.
  • On the surface world, there is a movie theater called, "Reef," this is a reference to its underwater counterpart, Reef Cinema.
  • In other countries, the movie is called "The SpongeBob Movie: A Hero Out Of Water 3D" or "SpongeBob SquarePants 3D."
  • There is a tie-in video game based on this movie titled "SpongeBob HeroPants." The game has not been released yet and being worked on by Activision.
  • In the second and thirteenth TV spots, We're Not Gonna Take It (Twisted Sister song) by Twisted Sister is heard.
  • On the Day of Positivity, The Weather Channel website and app promoted this movie by having CGI SpongeBob "say" things that correspond with the weather.
  • Despite this being a sequel to the original film, the Krusty Krab 2 is nowhere to be seen, confirming Stephen Hillenberg's statement about the first film being the finale is true.
  • In this movie, the characters become CGI animated when on land, whereas in previous episodes and the first film, they retain their 2D look.
  • This film will be presented in the 4DX motion-theater format in select international territories, which is a theatrical technology that produces strobe lightning, moving seats, scent, and environmental special effects to enhance the film-viewing experience.[19][20] This is similar to the technologies used in SpongeBob SquarePants 4-D and SpongeBob SquarePants 4-D: The Great Jelly Rescue!.
  • In the song "Thank Gosh It's Monday", the employee reward chart from "Restraining SpongeBob" appears. Therefore, this movie might take place after that episode.
  • As of January 27, 2015, the film is officially rated PG (at least in the USA).

Cultural references

  • The first poster for the film (pictured below) is a reference to the Coppertone sunscreen poster introduced in 1944.
