Paramount Pictures has released a new The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water trailer and poster for the upcoming sequel, which mixes traditional animation, CG animation, and live-action as the Nickelodeon characters wreak havoc on dry land. The story finds SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, Mr. Krabs, and Sandy the Squirrel surfacing in order to track down the stolen formula for Mr. Crabs’ beloved Krabby Patties. As it turns out, it’s been stolen by a menacing pirate/aspiring chef played by Antonio Banderas. It’s kind of sad to see a traditionally animated show embracing the CG era, but I wonder how fans of the Nick series (ie. children) will react to the new format.
Check out the new The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water trailer after the jump, along with a new poster. The film features the voices of Tom Kenny, Clancy Brown, Rodger Bumpass, Bill Fagerbakke, Carolyn Lawrence, and Douglas Lawrence. The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water opens in 3D on February 6, 2015.
