In the promotional poster for the studio’s newly christened The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run film, a 3D SpongeBob Squarepants (Tom Kenny) and Patrick Star (Bill Fagerbakke) can be seen looking through binoculars, while the former holds a wanted poster for his trusty pet snail, Gary. According to ComicBook, the film is being described as a prequel to the SpongeBob SquarePants series, and will follow the titular character during his time at Kamp Koral, a summer sleepaway camp.
Directed by Tim Hill, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run arrives May 22, 2020 and also includes vocal talents from Kelly Marie Tran, Awkwafina, and Reggie Watts in undisclosed roles. Hans Zimmer will score the film, while pop singer Cyndi Lauper will team with her co-writer Rob Hyman for more original music.
